CSTEP and STEP Project Directors:
On behalf of APACS, thank you in advance for renewing your
membership for 2017. You are a critical component of the professional
organizations’ success and vitality. Annual dues of
the Association are only $300.00 per program. The work
APACS undertakes on behalf of STEP and CSTEP programs and administrators
including professional development, programmatic advancements, and
advocacy efforts add value and voice to the field for STEP/CSTEP
professionals across New York State. This has produced valuable
results for the field - such as increased funding as a direct
result of advocacy efforts organized and facilitated by APACS.
APACS was established in 1997 by STEP/CSTEP professionals to advance
equity, access, and excellence in STEM fields and the licensed professions.
APACS remains a vital asset to the development of STEP/CSTEP Programs
and staff. There are many ways you can get involved in this organization
to positively impact APACS endeavors with your time and talents.
Connect with a committee that most interests you and volunteer.
You will have a more satisfying member experience by being engaged
with and learning from your peers.
The continued success of APACS is connected to your active membership.
Your dues provide numerous benefits, which include the following:
- Annual APACS Meeting & Conference held
June 14–16, 2017 in Albany, NY.
- Organizing essential advocacy
efforts with elected New York State
officials to ensure increased and continued program funding.
- Professional development workshops.
- APACS website (stepforleaders.org)
to provide resources and keep abreast of statewide developments

- Fellowship funding for scholarly research related

Our goal is to reach 100% - with membership from ALL STEP

needed to continue providing the professional development and visibility
that our programs need.
