It would be helpful for APA members to have a brochure that, in fact, answers the most commonly asked questions. Such a pamphlet might include answers to the following questions: How does one apply for membership? What part does the local chapter, district branch, or state association play in the process? How does one become a member as a medical student, resident (member-in-training), early career psychiatrist (ECP), or later? How does one advance from the category of member to fellow to distinguished fellow and so on?
