An important benefit of membership is professional involvement. Membership gives you a chance to keep informed about important professional issues and gives you a chance to be involved in the leadership of your profession. Membership is an important way you can take a stand that says "I am a Psychologist and I support my profession.” You spent years becoming a psychologist and then work most of your adult life in the profession. With so much of your life intimately involved in being a psychologist, you owe it to yourself and your profession to be involved.
