The APA's membership includes more than 155,000 researchers, educators, clinicians, consultants, and students. Through its divisions in 50 subfields of psychology and affiliations with 59 state, territorial, and Canadian provincial associations, APA works to advance psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare. Division 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) petitioned for recognition in 1995, and was sanctioned in 1996.
