AAPA Membership: Critical to Your Port, Your People & Your Business

AAPA empowers port authorities, maritime industry partners and service providers facing the demands of a global economy. While maritime and infrastructure challenges have a global impact, they also hit home in communities where ports sustain jobs and create opportunities.

At AAPA, we arm port leaders, professionals and maritime executives with the resources they need need to discern and act upon industry trends and educate their stakeholders on key issues. We also keep a watchful eye on the critical issues that affect our diversified membership.

As the pre-eminent voice of the seaport industry, AAPA works with its members to amplify key industry messages, and conducts vital public and policymaker education that builds support for the essential role and value of ports in the western hemisphere.

Members benefit from AAPA’s extensive education and training programs, annual events such as the Spring Conference and Annual Convention, and from the Association’s research, communications and public awareness initiatives.  In addition, AAPA’s U.S. members are represented in Washington, D.C., by Association lobbyists.

With five different ways to join – as a corporate, introductory, sustaining, associate or honorary member – we can find the type of membership that works best for you.  Join AAPA today.
