The list of member benefits continues to grow. Benefits will be available to the extent that financial resources allow. Consideration shall be given to diversity of benefit requests, potential of the desired benefit to enrich the community of members and/or larger community and the frequency with which individual members have already received benefits. Members are encouraged to suggest new benefits that help MAPD meet the changing professional needs of licensed and technical professionals and its mission. Benefits must be for activity incurred during fiscal year when membership is active.
Professional Licensure Reimbursement

This is so valuable to individuals, the organizations in which they work and the larger community that MAPD will reimburse the cost of professional licensure in a member’s home state. Reimbursement for licensure in other states can also be considered. Memberships run from July 1 through June 30th.
Eligibility for this benefit requires membership in MAPD over two fiscal membership years.
