Donations to the Education and Research Trust, a 501(c)(3) organization, and Minority Scholarship Program may be tax deductible as charitable contributions to the extent of the law.

No. The Common Address membership is only available to a school psychologist who shares a residential address with a current NASP Regular member and does not wish to receive duplicate copies of NASP publications.

Can I share my member login information with my colleagues?

Does joining my state association automatically make me a NASP member?
