Is a Corporate Membership Right for Your Company?

Is a Corporate Membership Right for Your Company?

A corporate membership is intended for companies with six or more employees who are interested in becoming members of or maintaining membership through the AAPC. This type of membership, purchased by the corporation, has been designed to save the employer money. There is an average savings of 29% for corporate memberships between six to ten individuals and a 40% savings when you have ten or more individuals, when compared to the individual renewal dues. Each corporate membership consists of ten “spaces”. These spaces allow for employees to be added or removed from the corporate membership at any time though out the renewal year. The company designates one person as the corporate contact, who then represents all members on the corporate membership.

*Please be aware that a local chapter does not qualify for a corporate membership.
