We are no longer accepting new ‘practitioner’ and ‘principle practitioner’ membership applications. This is because we are transitioning our membership categories to align with our Business Psychologist Certification. You are welcome to join as a General Member and we encourage you to consider applying for one of our other levels of membership through certification.

Being a member of the Association for Business Psychology brings a host of benefits and applying is simple.

To join as a Practitioner or Principal Practitioner member you should be a person who either manages, is partner in, or employed in, a business providing psychological services to business or the public sector. Alternatively, you maybe employed as a Psychologist in a relevant capacity (e.g. in HR) in a business or in the public sector.

We also offer General, non-practitioner membership for those who do not yet have this experience or who may be people interested in the application of Business Psychology. You might apply for this type of membership if you are an HR practitioner or Business person who feels an deeper understanding of Business Psychology might benefit you in your work.

Visit the Membership Categories page for more information regarding the different categories and their associated requirements.
