APA Services, Inc. was established in 2018 as an expansion of the former APA Practice Organization and is a 501 (c)(6) organization focused on advocating for the profession of psychology. The new APA Services, Inc. was approved in August 2018 by the APA Council of Representatives, to benefit members and seamlessly address the range of opportunities and challenges facing the entire discipline and profession of psychology.

APA Services, Inc. will advocate on behalf of psychology with the direction and guidance of an Advocacy Coordinating Committee responsible for evaluating and setting annual advocacy priorities with respect to impact on both the discipline of psychology and the professions of psychologists in scientific, educational, public interest, health service practice and applied practice settings.
