Regional Membership

APPA comprises 6 regions: CAPPA, ERAPPA, MAPPA, PCAPPA, RMA, and SRAPPA. Each region holds an annual meeting in the fall that provides institutional members with professional development opportunities and business partners a chance to engage with members on various levels.

Institutional membership in the regions is required for APPA membership, but optional for business partner membership.

Specific membership benefits can be found on each region’s page, but some benefits include:

  • Discounts on registration to regional meetings
  • Volunteer opportunities within your region
  • Additional chapter professional development opportunities; localized programming
  • Business Partners: exhibit and sponsorship opportunities
