Important Information Regarding Your Membership in AACP

Dear Colleagues,

As you may know, it is that time of year to collect annual dues for membership in the American Academy of Clinical Psychology.  We have just been advised by several of our valued members that when they renewed their certification through the American Board of Professional Psychology that they were prompted to also pay for the "Academy" associated with the American Board of Clinical Psychology.  I have contacted the American Board of Clinical Psychology and they indicate that there is now a “merged” Academy of the American Board of Clinical Psychology.  They do not have membership dues, but are utilizing a donation model instead to assist in start-up of the new Academy.  I have been advised that they are working with the website vendor about reorganizing the linked page that is at the end of the attestation process.   Admittedly, this is quite confusing.  Thus, you will not be renewing the American Academy of Clinical Psychology dues unless done through our website or mailed to our mailing address. To clarify. If you are paying on the aacpsy.org site then you are renewing membership with our organization that was established in 1993, a fully independent, professional membership organization.  If you are paying through the www.abpp.org site, you are donating to the “Academy” associated with the American Board of Clinical Psychology.

Members should know that membership in our Academy, the American Academy of Clinical Psychology IS NOT required in order to maintain certification with the American Board of Professional Psychology. Neither is membership required in the merged "Academy" that is associated with the American Board of Clinical Psychology required for continued ABPP certification.  Last year, our organization, the American Academy of Clinical Psychology became independent of the umbrella of the American Board of Professional Psychology in order to build a broader more independent membership organization with a focus on the promotion of excellence in clinical psychology. 

We value our members and hope that you will continue membership with our organization, whether or not you choose to join the "Academy" associated with the American Board of Clinical Psychology. Above all, we do not wish to be part of any confusion. The dual existence and sometimes roles of “Boards” and “Academies” has long been a confusing issue for ABPP Specialists.

We are excited about the direction and opportunities of our reorganized membership association and value your continued support.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at fred@dralberts.com or 813-257-9205.

Very truly yours,

FOR THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
AMERICAN ACADEMY OF CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, INC.

 

Fred L. Alberts, Jr., Ph.D., ABPP
