AAPA reserves the right to modify its membership tiers, benefits, programs or any aspect of the offering at any time.

*Values based on nonmember rates.

**Fellow Premium members attending the conference must book in the official AAPA hotel block for a minimum two-night stay during registration to receive the advertised complimentary conference rate. Premium members attending the conference that do not book in the official AAPA hotel block will be charged an additional $200 registration fee.

Can I change my membership option right now?

Yes, you can upgrade your membership from Professional or Plus to either Plus or Premium at any time. You will be charged the full difference in member rates. Your upgraded benefits will begin immediately and run through the end of your current membership term.

Alternatively, you can choose to renew your membership during your renewal period and select a different membership option – in which case your new benefits would start at the end of your current membership term and run for one year.

How much does it cost to upgrade?

The cost to upgrade is the price difference between your current membership and your new selected one. For instance, upgrading from Professional to Plus costs $200. Since the benefits included in Plus and Premium are of such high value, the upgrade cost is the full difference in cost, even if you don’t have a full year at that membership tier. Upgrading now would give you Plus or Premium membership immediately through the end of your current membership term.

Should I upgrade now to Plus or Premium or wait until my membership renews?

Should you want immediate access to a Plus membership resource (i.e. before the end of your current membership term), you could pay $200 to upgrade from Professional, and your membership term would be the same. You’d then have access to all the Plus resources through the end of your term.

If you can wait for this resource until the end of your current term, you can renew as a Plus member and pay $495 for a full year of Plus membership.

If you wish to attend AAPA Conference or access Conference on Demand before your term expires, upgrade to Premium now. If you wish to attend conference or access Conference on Demand during your next membership cycle, renew as a Premium member at the end of your current term and enjoy a full year of the Premium benefits.

Our team is happy to talk you through your options if you have questions.

Which conference do I have access to within Premium membership?

How long can I access all the CME on Demand products included in Plus or Premium membership?

Do the specialty on Demand products include virtual registration?
