Dear Colleague,
The AACoP Board has been engaged in a number of mission driven initiatives across this past year on behalf of membership. One of these initiatives has been to update the website to allow the Academy to offer a range of member benefits – some of which are available now – including the option to pay your dues on-line. Other benefits will be available soon that will keep you informed of critical issues, opportunities for participation in governance, and continuing education programs.

In order to maintain your status as a member of the American Academy of Counseling Psychology in good standing, please submit your 2018 dues via one of the mechanisms listed below.

** If you became board certified in Counseling Psychology in 2017, your dues are covered by the Academy for 2018; you will begin paying dues in 2019. If you believe that you meet criteria for Emeritus status (see below) as of 2017 – please follow instructions below. To qualify for Emeritus Status or serve on the AACOP board you must be a member in good standing, which requires that you have paid your dues annually since joining the Academy. Membership in the Academy is voluntary. Your annual ABPP attestation/dues payment is separate from Academy membership. Your AACOP annual dues ARE NOT included in your annual ABPP dues.
