Give the Gift of Membership!

Did you know you can give a GPHA membership as a gift? Any GPHA member may “gift” a membership to a non-member for the first year for $35. “Gift” memberships must come from an individual and not from an agency, association or other organization.

A “Gift” membership may not be utilized as part of the registration fee for participation in the GPHA Annual Meeting and Conference.

The “Gift” membership to the individual will be a one-time opportunity. In subsequent years the individual will be invoiced for the standard “General” member fee.

Please contact Patrina Bowles at patrina@gapha.org if you’re interested in gifting a membership.
