Tour the APHA Premium (and +ADL*) Membership
(What’s a Premium Membership? Learn more.)
APHA Membership is represented by two websites.
- The APHA Membership Site (located at www.MyAPHA.org and includes the APHA Connect! Discussion Forum)
- The AdvoConnection Directory where members are profiled and can be found by patients and caregivers seeking an independent health and patient advocate. (located at www.AdvoConnection.com) *Premium members who meet our directory-listing criteria may add their profiles to the AdvoConnection Directory.
- There are many additional APHA information sites (Educational Programs, Workshops, Books and more) but they do not require you to log in.
Membership Information and Account Management
From this section you can manage your APHA account, from changing your profile information (password, email addresses, and your subscription) to referring new members (you’ll get extra months added to your own membership), to free downloads (see Premium page at right), and renewing your membership. We try to make self-management a breeze so you can take care of business easily and quickly.
Announcements and the APHA Agenda
When announcements are paired with the APHA weekly newsletter (called The APHA Agenda), you’ll stay up-to-date on our organization’s events like Expert Call-ins, meetings of Special Interest Groups, or workshops, plus more general information about the advocacy profession such as updates on certification information, current surveys and results, access to mentors, and more.
…will take you quickly to specific, often-visited areas of the membership site such as access to our many Advisors, to registration forms for upcoming Expert Call-ins, to Offers and Discounts- you can see the possibilities at left.
…is APHA’s Online Resource Bank,
the premier online location for business development, best practices and advocacy knowledge.
From how-to business information (legal, insurance, marketing and more) to updates on client services needs (Medicare, hospitals and doctors, diagnosis and treatment information access and more), the APHA ORB offers you the support you need for being the professional advocate you are.
The APHA Connect! Discussion Forum
APHA Connect! is the heart of networking for independent health and patient advocates and other care professionals. Ask and answer questions, share advocacy information as it pertains to your practice, your clients, or even just some humor! Connect with others across town, or across the world. Participate – or lurk – as much as you would like. This is your opportunity to Connect! with like-minded individuals who can support you – and to whom you can provide support, too.
The AdvoConnection Directory
Hands down, the best form of online marketing for health and patient advocates and other care professionals is a listing in the AdvoConnection Directory. Especially during the first few years of your practice, a listing in the AdvoConnection Directory can make or break your ability to succeed in business.
Premium members are invited to list themselves in the directory once they have met our listing criteria, demonstrating their ability to serve patients and their caregivers both professionally and appropriately.
