The Association has three membership categories: Ordinary, Sustaining and Honorary membership. Although membership is open to both European and non-European individuals or organisations, only Europeans can hold official office, such as membership of the EAPR-Council. At present the Association has over 230 Ordinary members, 14 Sustaining members and 7 Honorary members. Membership is drawn from many countries in all five continents.
