Dear AAPA Member,
Thank you for your membership in the American Association of Pathologists’ Assistants, the only professional organization dedicated to the support, education, and advocacy of Pathologists’ Assistants! Can you believe 2018 has flown by so quickly? The time has come to renew your membership for 2019!
Let’s take a moment to look back at what our organization has accomplished for the Pathologists’ Assistant profession over the past year:
All of this has been offered on top of the host of other valuable, AAPA-exclusive benefits, which have been available to YOU as part of our organization, including FREE online CE credits, course labeling according to the Credential Maintenance Program requirements along with automatic transfer to ASCP for ease of recertification, The Cutting Edge Journal, networking with your professional colleagues at discounted conferences and on website forums, a constantly updated PA-only Job Hotline, scholarship and travel grant opportunities, and—most importantly—an organization that advocates for you! All of this with NO dues increase for 2019!
Membership in the only professional organization dedicated to Pathologists’ Assistants is about more than just paying fees and getting CE, it’s about being part of OUR community. It’s about being a part of the future of our profession! What does it mean to be part of that special community? First of all, as an AAPA member, you have the opportunity to share your talents and contribute to the advancement of your profession by volunteering. No one can advocate for our future better than YOU! All the wonderful things that have been accomplished in the past year have been done through the hard work of our volunteers.

With your help, where is our professional organization heading in 2019?
We know that when it comes to membership, there are other options available to you, and we want to assure you that your membership in the AAPA means so much more than just an annual fee. Also, remember that ASCP membership is not a requirement for the Credential Maintenance Program.
Now is your opportunity to be a part of what we have in store for 2019 by renewing your AAPA membership online or by phone, and confirming your place as a valued part of our professional PA community.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if you need assistance completing your renewal, please contact the Central Office (email@example.com or 800-532-AAPA).
We look forward to supporting you in 2019 and throughout your professional career!
