Fellows are recognized by their colleagues as members of a very select group and are permitted to use the FAPA designation on all of their professional documentation. Fellow applications require review and comment from the member’s district branch/state association as well as the approval of the APA Membership Committee and Board of Trustees. As a result of his achievement, Dr. Weltzin will be formally recognized during the APA’s 56th Convocation of Distinguished Fellows ceremony in San Francisco next year.
