Membership Renewal, Reinstatement, Transfer
To avoid any service interruption or suspension of membership or charges for late payment, membership should be renewed annually upon receipt of the membership renewal notice that is sent out in advance of the membership renewal due-date. Failure to pay dues and/or other charges owed may result in membership suspension. If this occurs reinstatement of membership is possible, subject to the remittance in full within sixty (60) days following suspension, of all unpaid dues/fees owed including any applicable reinstatement fee.
SCMP designation holders must maintain their membership in good-standing throughout their career by ensuring timely membership renewal. Failure to do so may result in suspension or revocation of the right to use the SCMP designation – professional accreditation status will be deemed to be “lapsed”. An individual who allows her/his professional accreditation status to “lapse”, will be required to fulfill all applicable conditions of reinstatement including remittance of all outstanding dues and fees and completion of outstanding maintenance of certification requirements.
SCMA Alberta Members/Associates who wish to transfer membership to another Provincial Institute of SCMA must complete and submit the membership transfer request form, authorizing the transfer of their records to the target Provincial Institute. Completion of the transfer implies termination of membership with SCMA Alberta. For more information, please refer to the Transfer of Membership Policy and Procedure.
