Membership in APPA denotes a significant contribution and commitment to advancing knowledge in psychopathology research and clinical practice. Members have access to content including slides from the annual meeting and recorded webinars. The membership elects the officers of APPA who organize the theme of the annual meeting, and members who are interested in greater involvement can participate on one of three committees (Diversity, Equity Inclusion, Accessibility and Belonging [DEIAB], Presidential, and Program).
