There are three tiers of membership, with:
the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP, dues: $84 / year prorated);
the Electronic Association of Parliamentarians (EAP, dues: $12 / year prorated);
the eNAP Unit (dues: none).
You can join more than than one association in the middle tier, and more than one unit. For example, you can be a member of EAP and the state association for where you live. If you are a member of more than one middle tier association, or of more than one unit, you notify NAP which is your Primary Association and your Primary Unit. You pay your middle tier primary association dues to NAP when paying your NAP dues, and then NAP sends the association dues back to the association. You pay dues for a non-primary association directly to the association.
Members of the eNAP Unit must become members of EAP even if they are already a member of another middle tier association.

There are three levels of NAP membership:
• The regular member (pass the membership test and pay the dues);
• Regular members can become Registered Parliamentarians (see NAP's RP page);
• RPs can become Professional Registered Parliamentarian (see NAP's PRP page).
Middle tier associations (as distinguished from the NAP at the top tier) and units may have "provisional members" who are not yet NAP members but are studying to become NAP members.
