As APA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization under IRS rules, it is legally limited in the amounts and types of advocacy efforts it can pursue. Providing for additional resources in order to confront persistent challenges and cultivate opportunities for practicing psychologists took a major step forward in 2001 with the advent of the APA Practice Organization. Created as a 501(c)(6) tax-exempt organization, the APAPO is able to engage in unrestricted advocacy in support of practicing psychologists, limited only by available resources.
An affiliate of APA, the APAPO's mission to advance, protect and defend the professional practice of psychology.
In addition to American Psychological Association (APA) dues, members who are licensed practitioners pay the annual "Practice Assessment" that supports the work of the APA Practice Organization (APAPO). The Practice Assessment provides vital resources to the APA Practice Organization, which aggressively promotes the professional interests of practicing psychologists in all settings. The APA is limited in doing this activity because of its tax status.
