Join the Texas Probation Association, the only professional organization created to exclusively serve the needs of probation and community corrections practitioners.

The Texas Probation Association has two membership classifications – Professional and Associate. Professional Membership is for full-time employees of probation departments and retired probation officers. Associate Membership is for all other categories of professionals who do now qualify for full membership, including, but not limited to, criminal justice practitioners, counselors, volunteers, treatment center personnel, professors, and students.

Dues paid to the Texas Probation Association are not tax deductible.

All members, whether Professional or Associate, receive a subscription to Texas Probation, lapel pin, decal, and registration discounts for Association conferences. All members may serve on committees. Professional members may vote, hold office, and chair committees, while Associate members are ineligible for these three activities.
