Contact Division Services

For inquiries about a specific division, browse the list of divisions to find individual contact information.

Each division has been assigned an account manager within the Division Services Office. Members and officers of divisions can turn to this representative to ask questions, seek help, and get referred to other resources within APA that can provide support (legal, elections, finance, directorates, advocacy, etc.).

In addition, the Committee on Division/APA Relations (CODAPAR) is one of APA's standing committees made up of six APA members who have extensive background in division leadership. This group can help with problems, brainstorming ideas, and referrals to other resources within APA.
