Of the professional memberships that Rover recognizes on our profiles, does anyone know what APSE stands for?

I was looking at the Professional Membership boxes Rover recognizes. I am compiling a list of all of the professional memberships that may help me to further my career and knowledge base. Does anyone know what APSE stands for? What does this organization do? Does anyone belong to it? Is it worth it? What others do you belong to? Do you have any you recommend?

Thanks! All I was finding was something about sports writers and something about workplace equality, but neither one sounded great. Are you a member of this service? Or are there others you like better? I am gathering information, and am looking for word of mouth yeses and nos.

Right now, I am gathering information, as I am slowly working to become a full time pet sitter, and would like to separate myself from some of the other Rover sitters in my area. I am looking into several professional organization (NAPPS, PSI, Petsit USA) and am wondering which ones are the best.

To be honest I do not like APSE, I think they are relatively new and have a lot to work on. I won't be renewing with them again. I have heard good things about NAPPS and PSI. I have a few certifications under my belt and I am interested in looking into PSI certification program.

Thanks, I thought their site looked a little cluttered or less professional than others and for the price, I could get just as much from one of the other organizations, Word of mouth is super valuable here and I am just looking into my best options to market my business and to be improving.
