APS AIPM Member Discount

Former APS and AIPM members are welcome additions to the AAPM member community.

The recent dissolutions of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (AIPM) as well as the American Pain Society (APS) have deeply disheartened AAPM leaders and members. AAPM has been fortunate to serve alongside both AIPM and APS over the years in shared efforts to advance pain education, research, and advocacy. The closing of these organizations is a loss for the entire pain community, and especially for former AIPM and APS members.

In acknowledgement of dues already paid to AIPM and/or APS, AAPM is offering former AIPM and APS members a 50% discount on their first year of Academy membership.

Anyone who can provide evidence of an AIPM and/or APS membership is eligible to receive the AAPM membership discount, so long as that individual is otherwise eligible for AAPM membership. Review AAPM member categories to determine what category is right for you.

Current AAPM members are not eligible for the discount. After the first year of membership, former AIPM and APS members will be subject to full, undiscounted AAPM membership dues.

Here’s how to claim your discount:

  1. Contact AAPM Member Services at 847-375-4731 or [email protected], and be prepared to provide verification of your AIPM or APS membership status. The following are examples of documents you may use to verify AIPM or APS membership: a receipt for a paid dues invoice, a membership letter and certificate, a member communication received from APS or AIPM.
  2. Once an AAPM Member Services representative has verified your membership, they can assist you in completing the membership application process and accept payment over the phone, or they can provide you instructions to complete your membership application and provide payment online, at the discounted dues rate.
  3. Following final review and approval of your AAPM membership application, you will receive an AAPM membership certificate and immediately can start claiming AAPM member benefits.
