Membership Benefits and Costs

Full APIC Member Benefits

  • Four issues of The Keynoter, the official publication of the APIC. This is a very professional publication with color illustrations that has invaluable information and articles of great interest to political memorabilia collectors.
  • Access to the features of the members only area of the APIC website.
  • Access to the complete membership roster.
  • Membership privileges at all APIC-sponsored shows, auctions and events, both regional and national.
  • Eligibility to join any of the Specialty Chapters within the APIC.
  • Full voting privileges and eligibility to run for APIC office per the rules and regulations established by the APIC.

However, while the collecting aspect of the hobby is important to most members, and the education that members receive is invaluable and never-ending, the biggest benefit the APIC provides is the friendship and fellowship that develops between members. This has become an integral part of the hobby for all of those who are actively involved. Many members have established lifelong friendships through this hobby. This is most evident when attending one of the regional or national shows.
