Membership Types

Two distinct membership types offer myriad benefits to those in the prospect research field.

Apra members may transfer your membership to another person within your institution at anytime. Should you need to cancel your Apra membership, an email must be sent to requesting a refund. This email must be received on or by March 1 to receive a full refund. No refunds will be issued after March 1. All refunds will be processed within 2 weeks of the cancellation request.

Individual Membership

Individual membership allows one professional to receive access to Apra benefits through the end of that calendar year (memberships are not prorated). Individuals who pay for their own membership may transfer their membership to another individual or retain the membership if they change jobs within the calendar year. If an institution pays for an individual membership, the institution retains the right to transfer membership to another employee if the original designee leaves the institution. To transfer an individual membership, please contact

Membership Dues: $240
