Levels of MAP Membership

Individual Membership  -  $65

Individual memberships are typically held by a local elected or appointed official whose community does not hold a group membership but who understands the benefit of belonging to a professional organization; or a professional planner who has not received national certification and does not belong to the American Planning Association (APA). Note: APA members automatically receive the MAP membership through their dues to APA.

Students  -  Free

It's easier and more affordable than ever for students and new planners to get started in MAP. In fact, membership is now free for any student actively enrolled or matriculated in any university or college degree program. It remains free for the duration of an individual's studies. "Free" includes APA, MAP, and AICP membership as well as membership in up to five APA divisions. Student members will be eligible for two years of reduced dues after ending their studies.  Click here to join
