Bylaws of the American Psychological Association - Article XIV: Affiliation of Other Organizations with the Association
Other organizations whose general purposes fall within the scope of Article I of these Bylaws may become affiliated with the American Psychological Association in accordance with the provisions of this Article.
Affiliated organizations shall represent groups of people such as students of psychology, a substantial proportion of whom are not eligible for membership in the Association. Such organizations shall not be local in character, nor shall their membership be limited on other than academic, scientific or professional grounds. It shall be made clear that membership in an affiliated organization does not imply membership in the American Psychological Association and that the Association assumes no responsibility for the administration or financial affairs of the affiliated organization.
Council shall determine what privileges of the Association may be granted to organizations which affiliate with the Association under the provisions of this Article.
In the event that Council believes that the affiliation of an organization under this Article is no longer in the best interest of the American Psychological Association, the principal officers of that organization shall be so notified, and thereafter the affiliation may be terminated by a two-thirds vote of Council.
