Join the MPS & APA!
Over 700 Maryland psychiatrists and physicians in psychiatric training already belong to the MPS – what are you waiting for?
The Maryland Psychiatric Society is the only organization in our state actively working exclusively on behalf of psychiatrists to ensure accessible, quality mental health services. The American Psychiatric Association – with more than 37,000 members in the U.S., Canada, and worldwide – is the voice of psychiatry for your patients and our profession. We offer advocacy, information, support, and educational opportunities to help you serve your patients and enhance your career
Some of the many membership tools to help psychiatrists succeed:
- Information on the latest treatment options
- Patient referral service, both online and by phone
- Medical liability insurance program tailored to psychiatrists
- Networking, CME events and so much more
Join the MPS Listserv
All active MPS members are invited to join the MPS listserv — a place where you can quickly and easily share information with other MPS psychiatrists. An email message sent to the listserv goes to all the members who have joined. To join please contact the MPS office at 410.625.0232. You will need to wait for membership approval and will be notified by email.
MPS Billing Practices
Beginning with the 2017 membership year, MPS dues are based on a calendar year. With a few exceptions, the APA bills for membership dues for both the APA and the MPS. Invoices are sent in October for the following year, with periodic follow ups to members who still owe. Members must pay the combined dues by March 31 to avoid being dropped from both organizations. Dues can be paid by check, credit card or other arrangement with the APA.
The exceptions are for members who have reached life status, Affiliate Members and Friends, who will be billed directly by the MPS for MPS dues.
For more information on the MPS or the APA, including dues information please contact Meagan Floyd at the MPS office Monday-Friday 9:00AM – 5:00PM at 410.625.0232. Or send Meagan an email.
