Membership Rates
For just pennies a day, you can use all of the APS services.

Our membership year runs from January 1 through December 31. Annual dues notices are mailed by early November and are payable by December 31.

Applicants for membership will have their first year’s dues prorated, based on the quarter in which their application is received. The prices below reflect a one-time $3 application fee that is not prorated. All fees are listed in U.S. dollars.

In the election of 1973, the members voted 9,743 to 1,600 to amend Article II of the bylaws, eliminating automatic life membership for members joining after December 31, 1973 and with a membership number higher than 074901.
The amendment reads:

"3.5 (b) A member joining the Society prior to January 1, 1974, who has been continuously in good standing for a period of at least 30 years, and who has attained the age of 65 years, shall be granted Life Membership..."

If you would wish to purchase a Life membership, you may make a one time payment of the whole amount, or we can setup a payment plan (twelve months only). You would be able to make the monthly payment by cash, money order, check drawn on a U.S. bank, or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, or Discover). If you would prefer quarterly payments, we would setup that type of plan as we are willing to work with our members for the payment plan that suits their budget. With the installment plan our accounting department can automatically charge your credit card monthly or we will mail you a monthly payment slip.
