REMINDER: Membership Dues Mailing Address Change - Effective Immediately

In the interim, while a new Treasurer is installed, due to Diana Gruber's term ending, in an effort to streamline our mailing service and speed up the approval process for our American Alliance of Paralegal's new member and renewing member dues payments, as well as AACP application fees and renewal dues payments, we are requesting that payments in the form of checks or cash be sent directly to the Treasurer of the American Alliance of Paralegals, Inc., at the following address:

John C. Goudie
AAPI Treasurer
2006 N. 70th Street
Wauwatosa, WI  53213

This applies to New AAPI Member, new AACP Applications and Renewing AAPI and AACP memberships. 

We are in the process of setting up our new Treasurer, Pamela Bass, to handle the Treasurer duties, so watch for future contact and mailing information.  Thank you!

John C. Goudie, SBWCP, AACP
President - American Alliance of Paralegals, Inc.

It has come to the Board’s attention that it is taking as much as 3 weeks for materials submitted in support of AACP certification to be forwarded to the Director of Education by the service monitoring the post office box in Delaware.  As a result, we ask that all individuals who are submitting NEW AACP applications and current AACPs who are submitting renewal applications note the new mailing address below.  

In order to streamline the application process and to bring the turnaround time more in line with the AAPI’s acceptable standards, NEW applications and renewal application materials should no longer be submitted to the AAPI’s post office box.  Effective December 17, 2019, all materials submitted in support of AACP certification, new and renewal, should be remitted directly to Stephanie P. Rubino, AACP, Director of Education, P.O. Box 632, 927 Montauk Highway, Oakdale, New York 11769.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Ms. Rubino at [email protected].
