2023-24 New and Revised Membership Categories

As you renew or join AASP for the 2023-24 year, we want to make you aware of new and revised membership categories! 

    • We have added an EARLY CAREER YEAR 1 and EARLY CAREER YEAR 2 Category offering new school psychologist professionals a discounted membership rates for their first two years in the profession. We hope this category assists graduate students become active or stay active in AASP as they start their careers.
    • STUDENT MEMBERSHIP will now have voting privileges for elections and other members-at-large ballots on policy changes. We strive to hear all of our member’s voices as we make critical decisions impacting our profession.
    • The FULL MEMBERSHIP category is now called REGULAR Membership to be consistent with NASP.
    • We have also revised the STUDENT ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP category to encourage undergraduate and graduate students not in school psychology programs to join AASP and consider careers in school psychology programs. As we expand our Exposure Project activities and other outreach, we hope to develop a more diverse and inclusive workforce pipeline into the profession. 

A December 2022 member-at-large vote approved these membership changes. For further details, please go to the JOIN AASP page: https://www.aasp-az.org/Join-AASP
