APTA Membership Fees Increase 23% to 44% for 2007

Reported by Richard Chandler on February 13th, 2007

APTA Membership 2007 Renewals – Late Payment Penalties & Fee Increases

While the renewal fee was technically due on February 1st, current APTA members have until February 28th (Postmark of February 28th is acceptable, even though the application arrives in March) to have their membership received by APTA headquarters or they also need to pay the new penalty fee of $36.00.

The 2006 and the 2007 membership fees increased as follows:

2006 APTA Renewals

2007 APTA Renewals

2006 General Membership

$ 66.00

2007 General Membership

$ 81.00

2006 Student Membership

$ 44.00

2007 Student Membership

$ 63.00

2006 APP Designation

$ 93.50

2007 APP Designation


2006 RPP Designation


2007 RPP Designation


2006 RPE Designation


2007 RPE Designation


General memberships increased by $15.00 or 23%

Student memberships increased by $19.00 or 43%

APP memberships increased by $23.50 or 25%

RPP memberships increased by $33.50 or 24%

RPE memberships increased by $60.50 or 44%

There were no prior announcements in the ENERGY Newsletter, the APTA website, by mail or email of the financial need for these increases or how specifically these increases in memberships fees would translate into member benefits. The first and only notice received was the APTA renewal notice, which was received by most members in January of 2007.

At least one RPE designation APTA member, of whom I am aware, chose to renew at the RPP rather than the RPE level, because of this increase. This person stated that it wasn’t just the $27.00 additional fee for RPE per say that prompted his decision; it was the fact that there was no prior notification that this change was being considered, and therefore no opportunity to have discussion and feedback prior to the decision being instituted.

Based on the communication back and forth between APTA headquarters, some board members, and the members that inquired about renewing at the RPP level instead of the RPE level, it was learned that members who choose to renew at the RPP rather than the RPE level, may not be able to regain their RPE level status by simply paying the additional fee, sometime in the future.

They instead may have to fulfill whatever requirements are in place for obtaining an RPE designation at the time they choose to pay the additional fee, in order to again be recognized by APTA as Registered Polarity Educators.
