About Us

Administrative Professional Association members, as a collective whole, provide the strength needed to communicate concerns, develop solutions, as well as explore policies and benefits with the University administration. We are only as effective as we are strong—your membership counts.

Administrative Professional Association members are proud to provide the support, knowledge and expertise that makes Western Michigan University a great institution to both receive an education and to be employed. As an active dues-paying member of the Administrative Professional Association you may take pride in the fact our organization works hard to provide an environment where the value of all WMU employees is acknowledged and recognized.

Membership with Administrative Professional Association provides opportunities for leadership outside your job parameters through appointed association committees as well as University boards and committees.
