Individual annual membership fees are due in full on joining ALUCA. The following terms and conditions apply to ALUCA membership services.
All members are bound by the ALUCA constitution, the code of professional conduct, and all notices and directives of ALUCA.
ALUCA members are required to indicate their acceptance of all terms and conditions of membership. New applications and renewals will not be processed until confirmation is received.
ALUCA membership fees are due annually – memberships are on a calendar year basis. If a member does not pay their membership fees, they will cease to be an ALUCA member and be removed from the ALUCA active member database
Failure to pay will result in membership becoming non-financial. Membership benefits will be restricted for all non-financial members. Membership will officially lapse one month after the renewal due date. If an individual’s membership does lapse that individual must not use any ALUCA CPLI post nominal professional designation after their name or claim to be a member of ALUCA.
ALL CPLI members will need to have their membership reinstatement evaluated for approval if they are more than three months overdue and will become non-members. If a CPLI member has not renewed their membership within a six month period they will need to reapply for membership at a different level.
ALUCA does not provide refunds on membership fees only on events as per the event cancellation policy.
ALUCA memberships are individual and non-transferable.
Costs incurred by ALUCA in processing membership fees All unexpected costs incurred by ALUCA in the processing of membership fees will be charged back to the member. Such costs include, but are not limited to, bounced cheques fees and related bank charges.
In order to maintain membership at a professional level (CPLI Affiliate, Associate, Associate Fellow and Fellow), all CPLI members are required to comply with ALUCA’s CPD policy. ALUCA conducts annual audits of a random selection of members to check compliance with the CPD requirements. Members who have not maintained the minimum number of CPD hours across the categories may be regraded to the level of ordinary member.
Members may apply to upgrade their membership to a CPLI accredited by completing the relevant upgrade form and paying a non-refundable upgrade assessment fee. The relevant CPLI supporting documents must be provided as evidence of the member’s eligibility for the membership level to which they are applying. Student members upgrading to ordinary membership may have their joining fee waived.
If your membership has lapsed, you will not be able to log in to the member portal and will need to contact the ALUCA secretariat. Lapsed members of more than 4 months will be charged a re-joining fee as per the current ALUCA joining fee. If a CPLI accredited member has lapsed they will be subject to the CPLI membership reinstatement policy. Alternatively you call (02) 9918 9230 to pay over the phone.
Please reach out to us if you are experiencing financial difficulty or changed circumstances. Subject to ALUCA’s Board discretion we may be able to suspend your membership and allow you to retain continuous membership status, for a maximum of one year. You will receive a renewal notice at the end of your first year.
Further information can be found in the ALUCA constitution and code of conduct in the Members Centre.
