Being an APA fellow is an earned, honorary designation. While yearly dues rates for general members and fellows are the same,
fellowship carries several benefits:
Fellows may use the FAPA designation on all of their professional documentation.
New fellows will be recognized at the Convocation of Distinguished Fellows at APA's 2012 annual meeting in Philadelphia.
Fellows receive a lapel pin and an embossed certificate as a symbol of their status.
The major requirements are five years of general membership and Board certification.
A fellowship application form is posted at <www.psych.org/Resources/Membership/EnrollmentFormsApplications/FellowshipGuidelinesandNominationForm.aspx>. More information is available by calling (888) 357-7924 and asking for a Membership Department staff person.
