You may check if you are a member in good standing or pay your dues by logging into and then clicking on “My Account” in the upper left-hand corner.

You may also contact the APFA membership/dues department to confirm if you are in good standing. For assistance with online payments, to pay over the phone, or to check your dues status, you may contact:
