I am a full member naturopath of another association, does ANPA has a level of membership that I can apply for?

Yes, we have a special category of membership “Secondary Member” that entitles a full naturopath member of another association to join ANPA at significantly reduced rates. The full membership of the other association must be verified in applying for this category. The benefits you would access would be all those of a full member except you would not have any voting rights.
