Your "APS" is simply a membership category within the SDMS. It is a membership category for recognition within the SDMS just like the senior and fellow membership category. It is not recognized by the ARDMS or even the SVU.
Don't confuse the SDMS APS membership category with anything outside of the SDMS society. I know that it requires a lot of hard work to get initially and keep active. Why would you be against everyone having to up their game in the wider world?
