Submit application to APMA:
- Please send your completed application, copies of all professional degrees, diplomas, and/or certificates to APMA Membership Services for approval as indicated on the application form.
- Once your application has been reviewed for completeness and approved, APMA will send an invoice for state and national dues listed below, prorated based on the month that you join.

Renewing your membership
WSPMA membership dues are paid through APMA.
- In May of each year, you will receive a dues invoice for the entire fiscal year from the APMA for both state and national dues.
- You will pay the APMA directly, not the WSPMA, the dues for the year based based on the amounts listed above. The APMA will accept credit card payments.
- If the total dues for the year are not paid by August 31, your membership will be suspended by the APMA. They will send a suspension letter and a final reminder notice out on that date. If you pay right after receiving the notice, you will be reinstated.
- If a member has circumstances that limit their ability to pay the dues and they want to remain a member, they should let WSPMA know before August 31.
APMA has a 5.4 status program where a portion of the dues is waived for financial difficulty, illness, etc. This can only be instituted for a current member, not after suspension.
