In this paper, we discuss the history of the two organizations and the history of other attempts at organizational consolidation; explore the similarities and differences in the organizations’ missions and values, structures, and activities; and consider each organization’s unique characteristics. We conclude with a set of recommendations concerning organizational consolidation and will raise a number of pertinent questions we feel the profession must address as it considers consolidating ACPA and NASPA.
