CPA Membership

Important Notice: The CPA membership registration process has changed during the 2016-2017 membership year.  All registrations and renewals will now take place through an online process known as RegOnline by Lanyon.  This system will allow for online credit card payments as well as mailed-in check payments. Please read the revised information below.


As a 2016-2017 CPA member, you will receive a discount on your 2017 Conference registration along with access to regional workshops, issues forums, prevention updates, and a networking voice with state organizations and government departments.


Current membership is effective for July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017.  The rates are as follows:


Individual or Small Agency of 1 to 2 members: $50 each

Agencies with 3 to 5 members: $150 for group

Agencies with 6 to 10 members: $300 for group

Agencies with 11 to 15 members: $425 for group

Agencies with 16 to 20 members: $650 for group


It is suggested that one person complete the online membership registration for all individuals joining from their agency. Please click here for a list of required information.  This form may be printed out for each person registering to complete, and to provide to the one individual completing the online registration process for everyone from that agency.   



Membership payments may be made directly online with most major credit cards or sent through the mail by check.  Use the dropdown arrow to choose your method of payment. The credit card will not be charged until the membership information is manually checked, generally requiring 2 business days.  Upon posting, the card transaction will be displayed as “ACT -CPA Member Dues.”


If paying for your membership by check, please print a copy of your invoice after you complete your online membership registration, and mail it with your payment to:


Commonwealth Prevention Alliance

State College, PA 16804-0281
