A message to our life-status members…

We need your help.

friends-icon-300px Dear Colleague: As a long-time member of APA you have earned life-member status, which includes exemption from Division dues. Division 42 appreciates your support over the years. But we are facing a crisis.

Membership is growing, but dues revenue is shrinking

How can this be? New members are joining Division 42. However, the number of new dues-paying members is eclipsed by an even greater number of those who attain dues-exempt life status. Currently over 750 members of Division 42 are no longer required to pay dues. In order to meet our operating expenses, the Board has reluctantly voted to increase annual dues for younger members. But this won’t be sufficient to maintain all the programs and products that you see on this page, as well as future projects to help meet the needs of psychologists in private practice.


Please help your younger colleagues

The Division 42 dues increase does not affect you. Essentially, you are paid up for life! But we hope you’ll consider making a modest, dues-like contribution to the Division, so that we can continue to provide programs and services to colleagues at various career levels. Today’s marketplace is far more challenging than when you were starting out.


How to contribute

The simplest way to help support Division 42 is to set up a credit card payment that auto-renews annually. Suggested donations are listed below. Please select the option that fits your budget.

We will also gladly accept a one-time donation of any amount. More details here. If you prefer to pay by check, please contact Jeannie Beeaff, Division 42 administrator.

A few of our members are in a position to make a generous gift of $500 or more to Division 42. If you are able to do so, please contact our Membership Committee Chair for personal assistance in setting up your donation.

Thanks so much! Your contribution may be tax deductible (check with your accountant).
