A Few of the Ways MPA Works for ECPs

For the first two years after you graduate, MPA offers a $220 discount for membership, pay for one year and receive your second year free.
If you’re in a jam (or think you’re about to be), MPA offers a free session of legal consultation.  We also have on-hand experts in ethics, licensure, and insurance! 

The ECPC has a voice that’s heard: The ECPC Chair has a vote on the MPA Board of Directors.
APA offers online resources for ECPs.
