Senior Membership

Senior members pay $88 per year, one-half the Regular dues.

To qualify for Senior Membership, the member must have at least 10 consecutive years of APS membership. In addition, the member must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Reached the age of 70
  • Retired from gainful employment
  • Retired due to permanent disability.

For those who qualify, write "Senior Member" on your invoice and adjust the dues amount to $88 or $1320 for Senior Lifetime Membership. Senior members for whom the $88 dues causes a hardship may adjust the rate to $0.

For more information on qualifying for Senior Membership, contact an APS membership representative at or 301.209.3280.
