Please note that memberships in SPP run on the calendar year. If you apply to join SPP between September 1 and December 31 of each year, your dues will be applied to the next calendar membership year. You are still considered an SPP member during the time leading up to the next calendar year (i.e., you are eligible to apply for our awards, join our listserv, etc), but some of your member benefits (e.g., receipt of your copy of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology) will not begin until the next calendar year.

If you are a member who pays their dues directly to the Division instead of to APA, you can pay by credit card using a secure online payment system.

Membership Renewal

If you are a current member of the Society, but not an APA member, you can renew your membership online using a secure credit card payment process and update your contact information. If you do not remember your username or password, please contact Karen Roberts. If you are a member of APA and joined Division 54 through APA membership, then your dues will appear on your APA statement.
