AAP began as a Focus Group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education, and is now an incorporated non-profit organization. AAP retains its own dues, which are separate from and in addition to any dues you may have to pay to ATHE. We hold our annual meetings at the ATHE conference and regularly co-sponsor conference events with other focus groups.

Here you may join AAP, renew your membership, and pay your registration fee for the annual AAP Conference by credit card. The "Add to Cart" buttons will send you to a secure PayPal site which will safely handle the entire transaction and will return you here once the transaction is complete.
