Ala-APA, the Alabama Amateur Press Association was a short-lived APA founded in 1966 and open only to Alabama fans. Its Official Organ was The Alabama Fan. The APA's president was Al Andrews and the Official Editor was Larry Montgomery. It folded the same year after its fourth mailing because a number of members moved out of state and the OE, Montgomery left to join the Air Force.

Members: Al Andrews, Lon Atkins, Fred Azbell, Tim Eklund, Larry Montgomery, Chuck Patty, Wally Weber, and Andy Zerbe
