Association for 
Professional Acupuncture 
in Pennsylvania


The regular meetings of the APA, usually held on the 3rd Sunday of the month, consist of a 1-hour education presentation and a 1-hour general business meeting. These presentations are free and worth 1 PDA for licensed acupuncturists. General meetings are occasionally held to correspond with a longer APA sponsored workshop. You are not required to attend the class to participate in a meeting, nor must you stay for the meeting if you attend a class.  Please see event details for topics, speakers, and required workshop fees.

Our goal is to support the educational and professional needs of Oriental Medicine in Pennsylvania.

Donate to the PAC – PA
Money collected goes straight to lobbying efforts on behalf of all licensed acupuncturists in Pennsylvania. We work an uphill battle to create a greater scope of practice and gain the freedom to practice our profession without the supervision or mandated referral of Medical Doctors.

With your help of both time and money, we can send lobbyists to Harrisburg to fight for our rights to practice without the supervision or referral of MD’s.

The most important thing for you to do first is to become a member. Your membership dues will help us build a strong lobby as well as help support our educational efforts. Please consider making a donation to our political action committee (PAC_PA). An extra $10, $50 or $100 is more helpful than you may realize. Thank you for supporting the rights of acupuncturists in Pennsylvania!
