There are numerous benefits that do not easily fit into a category within any fraternal organization; but some important aspects and benefits of N.A.P.E. membership are:
Eligibility Membership may be granted to the Association by ballot to those member-recommended persons of good moral character who are citizens of the United States or Canada or who have declared their intentions of becoming such and who qualify. As there are currently no Chapters outside of the United States, Canadians wishing to join N.A.P.E. would have to do so as Members at Large or Lifetime Members at Large.
Education Through Chapters located throughout the United States, N.A.P.E. provides educational courses to bring new information and technology to power engineers. We also provide educational courses through On-Line Training for those who are unable to attend a Chapter for educational courses or wish to train a large group of employees within a company.
The National Engineer You will receive the National Engineer magazine, the quarterly (four issue) publication of the Association for free. This authoritative publication brings information to our members concerning new technology, repairs and maintenance, education, news and safety tips. The National Engineer helps keep power engineers across the country up to date with current information concerning the trade and the latest news concerning N.A.P.E

Newsletters Members of N.A.P.E. receive a monthly newsletter prepared by the individual Chapters, to keep members posted on programs, educational activities, meetings, and social events occurring within each Chapter.
Employment Opportunities Access to companies or persons seeking applicants for specific employment opportunities are posted on the N.A.P.E. website for your viewing. Also, attending meetings and events are direct networking opportunities for those seeking new employment as you will be in the presence of facility managers and other workers in the engineering/operations field.
National Conventions An annual N.A.P.E. National Convention is held each year. The location is selected by the current President of N.A.P.E. Matters concerning N.A.P.E. business are discussed and resolved, and new Officers are elected for the coming year. Members are encouraged to attend National Conventions and participate in the planned activities and business meetings. Another great networking opportunity.
