APA’s 54 divisions are interest groups organized by members. Some represent subdisciplines of psychology (e.g., experimental, social or clinical) while others focus on topical areas such as aging, ethnic minorities or trauma. APA members, and even nonmembers, can apply to join one or more divisions which have their own eligibility criteria and dues. In addition, each division has its own officers, website, publications, email list, awards, convention activities and meetings.
