most sustained periods of growth in the association’s history. The sharp
increase in APMP membership is directly attributed to:

Accreditation program, becoming the number one APMP membership driver.

concentrated membership recruitment and retention plan which includes
recruitment through new lists and personal telephone calls to expiring members.
