Welcome to the Michigan State University Administrative Professional Association (“MSU APA”). With approximately 2,400 local union members, the MSU APA is the largest labor union on the campus of Michigan State University.

The MSU APA contains non-supervisory support staff that work in a variety of disciplines within the University, in more than 300 administrative professional classifications, at MSU’s main campus in East Lansing, Michigan, as well as several satellite campuses around the state of Michigan. Each member of the APA is also a member of the Michigan Education Association (“MEA”) and the National Education Association (“NEA”), the largest and most influential labor union in the state of Michigan and the United States respectively.

This website is designed to serve as a first point of contact for local APA union members. On this site you will find official APA governance documents, meeting minutes, standing committees, archived APA Newsletters, a complete contact list for the Area Representatives, Executive Board and APA Officers, as well as time sensitive information from the APA and our parent organizations.

The MSU APA office is located in Okemos, Michigan, near the corner of Okemos and Jolly roads, at 3474 Alaiedon Pkwy., Suite 400. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to give us a call 517-999-4004.

Thanks for visiting our website. Martin McDonough MSU APA, President

New Hire Information

Welcome to the MSU Administrative Professional Association. We want to make sure all have access to member services, information and benefits, messages from the APA President, newsletters, opportunities to attend educational and training sessions and much more.

The APA only receives notice of newly hired members once a month from MSU Central HR and, depending on when the hiring paperwork is processed, we may not be notified of a new hire for 2 months or even longer.

Once we are notified, we reach out to new members, via email, and invite them to sign up for an individual meeting or group lunch. Currently, the email may not be delivered if the new member is using a departmental email and does not forward their MSU netID email to their departmental account. This will become less of a problem as departments switch to the new MSU email system.

So if you are a new APA, please know we extend a welcome and feel free to contact the MSU APA to schedule a new APA member orientation and to complete your membership card.
