AAPPD is a 501(c) 4 statewide consortium of providers licensed to deliver services to individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. For over 30 years, AAPPD has supported and advocated for its 80+ member organizations and the clients they serve. Our members strive to help adults and children with disabilities contribute to and remain a part of their communities. In addition, member organizations are continually seeking ways to improve programs and services for individuals with disabilities and their families.
For more than three decades, AAPPD has been an active voice at the Arizona Legislature. We lobby on behalf of you and your clients; we keep you informed of important news and other information relating to best practices in our industry. With more than 90 diverse members statewide, we strive to understand each agency’s unique needs. Visit our member benefits page to take a look at a list of reasons to join AAPPD.

AAPPD members and their staff are passionate about providing the best quality of life possible for their clients. Our membership consists of more than 90 diverse organizations statewide that vary in business structure, budget size, and culture, and all are contracted with DES/DDD to provide services to individuals with physical and developmental disabilities.
The AAPPD membership shares a wide range of knowledge that is complemented by the common goal of helping people with disabilities engage and remain in their communities. You can see a full list of AAPPD members on the “our members” page.
Annual dues are based on an organization’s estimated annual DES/DDD contract dollars. Take a look at the membership forum above to get an idea of what your annual AAPPD dues would be. AAPPD does have dues payment plan options, and offers members the ability to pay annually, bi-annually, quarterly, or monthly.
AAPPD is funded through member dues. Take a look at the “our members” page to check out our member organizations.
Dues paying members of AAPPD are also members of AAPPD’s Board of Directors. Each year, AAPPD members elect an executive committee to help govern the organization. You can view our Board of Directors on the “our members” page and learn more about the AAPPD executive committee on our “leadership” page.
Three are several different options for members of the business community who do not have Department of Economic Security contracts with the state. Those options are summarized below.
1. Associate Membership - Our associate members do not have DES contracts with the state, but still want to attend our monthly meetings and other AAPPD member-only events AND get our membership only communications. The cost of an associate membership is $1,000 annually, and one would fill out the “associate member” section our membership form to get the new member process started.
2. Web Sponsor - Our web sponsorship program is another opportunity for members of the business community. Web sponsors have a number of benefits which can be reviewed on our online application. Web sponsors have the opportunity to showcase their business through useful content provided to AAPPD members through electronic communications and receive an invitation to all AAPPD networking/social mixers.
3. Conference Sponsor - AAPPD's annual conference takes place during the fall each year. Sponsors and vendors have various opportunities to interact with 250+ conference participants from the provider community.
