We invite everyone to join SQIP and become active! In light of recent events regarding APA, we recognize that you might be concerned about your affiliation with SQIP and/or APA. You can join with or without APA affiliation. As of right now, the following membership options are available. Please read closely as the different options allow for various participation in governance votes.
Join SQIP with APA affiliation
Join SQIP by joining Division 5 and APA. By joining both the Division and APA you will have full voting rights (Fellows, Members, and Associates) in Divisional matters that include section governance. Click here to join the SQIP, Division 5, and APA. After filling out your information and submitting payment, you will receive a follow-up email within two weeks allowing you to declare SQIP as your primary section. It is very important that you look for this email and respond as SQIP is not the default section and you might miss out on important news and announcements. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not receive this email.
Join SQIP without APA affiliation ($23/$43 with journal)
Join SQIP by joining Division 5. A membership in APA is not required to join the division. You can join the division as a Student Affiliate (for students), Professional Affiliate (for professionals who do not belong to APA), or International Affiliate (professionals outside the US or International Affiliates of APA) without membership in APA. You have the option to join with or without the journal (dues are $23 without and $43 with) and can select this at the time of your application/renewal.
You can join easily online and within two weeks of joining you will receive a follow-up email from Division Services allowing you to select SQIP as your primary, secondary, or tertiary section within the Division. It is very important that you look for this email and respond as SQIP is not the default section and you might miss out on important news and announcements. Please email email@example.com if you do not receive this email. Additionally, your first year of Division 5 membership is free if you choose not to get a journal!
Click here to join the division. (Note: this uses an APA-hosted portal which requires you to register but is not the same thing as joining APA). These categories of membership do not include voting rights in the Division but do include voting rights within the Section.
