OAPT MEMBERSHIP

OAPT is as strong as its membership, and we need you to continue our tradition of excellence!

Memberships are due for renewal by July 1st — but we strongly encourage you to renew at the time of conference registration each year.

Existing members should have received an automatic invoice, which you can pay securely online with a major credit card. Simply log into myOAPT and pay online.  (REMEMBER: Dues are no longer included in the conference registration.)

As we transition to this online payment system, we are aware of a couple of instances were payment was made, but not properly recorded. If you believe you have already paid, but still received an invoice, please forward details on the payment including check number, or Paypal confirmation number to treasurer@oapt.org so we can ensure the issue is resolved quickly.

If you attended our Annual Conference & Trade Show, but did not renew your dues, your membership will expire on July 1st.  Current dues are required to receive the “Member Rate” on future conferences.

We value your investment in OAPT, and look forward to working with you!
