I recently graduated from residency, so I was looking into CME through APA membership. This was the first time I paid attention to their membership dues structure. The annual fees go up every year to a max of $575/year. This does not include district branch dues which end up being $100/year for my district. http://www.psychiatry.org/join-participate/becoming-a-member I am not working in academics and probably will not be attending or presenting at very many, if any, future APA meetings. I will have access to AJP digitally through my hospital/employer. I can get quality CME elsewhere. Right now, I don't see that membership is worth the cost. Are there any other advantages of joining that I am not taking into account? Does it really matter if you can append FAPA to your signature block?
