Frequently Asked Questions

When are the meetings and how much do they cost?

Our meetings take place once per month, which is typically the third Thursday of the month. This varies depending on holidays, and National APA events. The first two meetings are free, and it's $5 per meeting thereafter. Meetings are free to Chapter Members.

Where are the meetings?

The location of the meeting changes depending on who is available to host. Regular monthly meetings are usually held at the business of a North San Diego Chapter Member or guest. If you would like to host a meeting contact our Membership Director. In the past we have had special events at local restaurants, wineries, breweries, casinos, and on a boat!

How can I keep informed of meetings and/or events?

We post our events on the calendar on the home page. You can click on the marked days for more information about a local or National event. Our Membership Director also maintains an email distribution list to send notices of our monthly meetings as well as reminders and job postings. If you would like to receive such notices be sure to send your request to the Membership Director.

Is an R.S.V.P. required?

Not required, but we do appreciate our members registering on-line for each meeting for planning purposes. Most meetings do not require an RSVP, but we will ask for one if we are serving dinner, if there is a tour, or if the location of the meeting requires such. Once a year we hold a special event in September to celebrate National Payroll Week. This event is always free for members, and there is a nominal fee for guests.

How can I become a member?

You can get a membership form from the Membership Director at a meeting, or you can complete an online form by clicking on the "Membership" tab, then selecting "Member Application" on the left side panel.  Our memberships are $40 for a calendar year, so your first year's dues will be prorated for the remaining months of the year.  After your first year, membership renews each January for $40 for the full year.

How can I renew my membership?

You can bring a check for the Membership Director at any meeting, or you can complete an online form by clicking on the "Membership" tab, then selecting "Renewal Dues" on the left side panel.  You will be asked to log in to our site with your assigned Username and your password, then the renewal fees and form will be displayed.  After your first year, membership renews each January for the full calendar year.
