Albuquerque Public Schools Principals' Association (APSPA)

Principals and Assistant Principals are eligible for membreship.

For more information, contact Executive Director Gary Atwood at or President Nikki Dennis at

Educational Administrators and Support Personnel Association (EASPA)

All APS employees in the MSE, PSE, and CSE payroll groups are eligible for membership. All requests for membership are accepted.  A payroll deduction to cover dues is required, and the Application for EASPA Membership must be completed, signed, and turned in. The form will be forwarded to the Payroll department to start the deduction.

There is no “binding document”.  A request in writing to Payroll is all that is necessary to stop the dues payment – and disenroll from the organization.

President: Al Pohl (, 765-5950 ext. 284)
