2. How much are APMA dues?
Membership for students, residents, and fellows is free! Dues for DPMs in practice range from $232 to $925, depending on the number of years in practice. New members' dues are prorated based on the month they join per the APMA membership year of June 1–May 31. View the APMA member dues rates.
3. How much are component membership dues?
APMA has 53 component organizations, one in each state plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and one for those working in the Federal Services. The APMA National and Component dual membership model means you’ll be aligned with podiatrists across the country and within your state. Much like APMA dues, the component dues rates vary depending on the number of years in practice.
4. Can I join APMA without joining the component?
APMA and the state components are two parts of a whole. We work in unison to provide an array of services for our mutual members. The dual membership model is designed for maximum impact and influence at local and federal levels; therefore, it's not possible to join only part of what APMA and the state components partner to provide.
5. What do I get for my dues payment?
APMA members enjoy a host of benefits and services to support them in their day-to-day practice including practice management, reimbursement, and coding guidance. Services range from advocacy to education, promotion of the profession to helping you promote your practice, plus a suite of affinity programs to save money on purchases—exclusively for APMA members.

6. What if my ability to practice is limited or I’m unable to practice?
