Who Can Apply
APA membership is open to any individual business, partnership or corporation engaged in publishing or distributing books, journals, educational materials and electronic works as a bona fide and ongoing operation with an office in Australia.
To be eligible, an applicant's publishing/distribution must be of a continuous nature, even if their output is small. Nationality, size or speciality is not taken into account. Publishing/Distribution Members may only be full members – Associate members can only be those companies who service the publishing industry and enjoy all the privileges of membership, except for voting. Subscriptions for full members are based on their company's annual turnover.
