APA National Membership Versus Tennessee Chapter-Only Membership

We also have a Tennessee Chapter-Only membership for Tennessee Planners who do not wish to be a part of APA National. There is a reduction is cost for Chapter-Only members, but it also doesn't have many of the perks that come with an APA National membership.
