Join MPA

One benefit of membership is a reduced registration fee for the annual meeting.

Membership is not the same as registration for the conference. Everyone attending the conference must register. Membership reduces the price of registration, allows for leadership opportunities within the organization, allows for Fellow Status and other awards.

Membership is for anyone except undergraduates. Undergraduates get the same low rate for registration regardless of membership status.

You can Join or Update your Membership in the Profile Home which can be accessed HERE.
