Dues are payable by check, Visa, MasterCard or American Express and must be received by Oct. 1, 2017. Otherwise membership privileges will be suspended until full payment of dues is received and your listing will be omitted from the 2018 Membership Directory.

In keeping with IRS regulations, non-profit organizations are required to notify members that a portion of their dues payment is applicable to lobbying expenses and therefore not deductible as a business expense. (This is printed on the dues invoice.) The AAPD has determined that the following amounts are not deductible as a business expense for 2017–18:

Active $121
Associate, Affiliate, Life, Friends $61
All other membership categories $0

The AAPD congratulates all June postdoctoral graduates on their commencement into the profession. We would also like to remind you about the many reasons why membership in the AAPD is so important, especially at this point in your career.

• Free transition from student to active membership. This applies only if you complete an active membership application and return it to the AAPD headquarters office prior to Dec. 31, 2017.
• To be listed as an Active Member in the printed 2018 Membership Directory applications must be received by Sept. 1, 2017. Membership applications are available at
• Recent graduate are afforded one year dues-waived and two years of reduced membership dues at 50 percent off the full active membership dues rate if they have maintained continuous membership. The dues reduction rate would translate to:

2017 Graduate Convert before Dec. 31, 2017 Convert after Dec. 31, 2017
First year out - 2017-18 $0 Prorated dues application if not received by 12/31/17
Second year out - 2017-18 $345 Active Dues
Third year out - 2017-18 $345 Active Dues

Transition from student membership to active membership is not automatic. Student members must submit an application and a copy of their pediatric dentistry certificate to the AAPD office.

Alternatively, program directors may send a list of graduating residents to verify the completion their program to our office to membership@ and AAPD will automatically update their membership status to Active; otherwise the student must send in an application with certifi- cate. For questions regarding student to active membership please contact AAPD Membership Department at (312) 337-2169.
