Perhaps the most unique benefit that KPA offers is the ability to join and pay for your membership at a cost-effective, monthly rate. We are currently, to our knowledge, the only psychological association in the country that offers this payment option. Click here to view the terms and conditions of our monthly membership options.

Our dues are set at a rate to sustain our organization. However, if you are unable to pay the full amount for membership due to financial constraints, please let us know here with a brief explanation and the amount you are able to pay. This request will be received by our Executive Director who will de-identify the request for review by our Membership Committee.
