The Academic Membership best serves individuals that hold full-time academic positions in a graduate or undergraduate program in a post-acute and aging services long term care health-related field at an accredited college or university but are not currently practicing as professionals in the field.  Apply online or download an application.

We have two levels of Academic Membership:

    • Voting: Annual Dues of $175
      • Those individuals in academia that seek Continuing Education (CE) credits, but are not professionally qualified by licensure in the field. Individuals seek the development of collaborative forums that grant opportunity to develop new course content and teaching methods, and opportunities to meet and network among colleagues who share similar interests.
    • Non-Voting: Annual Dues of $125
      • Similiar to the Academic (voting) membership.  Those individuals that maintain a full-time position in an accredited college or university in long term care administration, but are not professionally qualified by licensure, do not seek Continuing Education (CE) credits, and do not meet the qualifications established for Voting Members.
