Membership

You are here

Membership in the Society shall be restricted to the following classes:

(a) Registered Member in Good Standing - a Registered Member who holds a valid certificate of qualification evidencing the successful completion of the Society’s certification examination (or equivalent certification, as solely determined by the Board) and who has satisfied all prerequisites established by the Board, at the discretion of the Board (including but not limited to full payment of all applicable membership dues). A Registered Member in Good Standing has the right to vote at a meeting of the Members, may be elected to the Board, and may be appointed to an office of the Society.

(b) Registered Member Not in Good Standing - a Registered Member who holds a valid certificate of qualification evidencing the successful completion of the Society’s certification examination (or equivalent certification, as solely determined by the Board), but who has not satisfied all prerequisites established by the Board (including but not limited to full payment of all applicable membership dues). A Registered Member Not in Good Standing has no right to vote at a meeting of the Members and may not be elected to the Board nor may be appointed to an office of the Society. For clarity, a Registered Member who has been suspended pursuant to Section 4 herein shall be deemed to be of this class of membership pending the lifting of such suspension.

(c) Inactive Member- any person who the Board may admit as qualified and has paid all applicable membership dues, but who has self-declared that he/she is not actively working in the field. Inactive Members do not have the right to vote, but may be appointed to an office of the Society.

(d) Business, Commercial or Industry Member - any person not holding a valid certificate of qualification of the Society, but who has paid the applicable membership dues and who has received approval of the Board. This category of membership has no vote and is not eligible to be elected to the Board or to hold any office.

 (e) Life Member - a Registered Member who is recognized for professional contribution to the Society, as approved by the Board. A Life Member has all of the privileges of a Registered Member in Good Standing.

All membership periods shall be annual, subject to their renewal. Memberships are non-transferable. Certification/Registration (membership) cards shall be issued annually by the Society. Such cards are the property of the Society, and the Society reserves the right to recall any membership card at any time.
