What is the period of membership?
Your membership will continue indefinitely. However, in order to maintain an active membership body at all times (important for establishing a quorum in general meetings) the Authority may discontinue the membership of a particular member in the following circumstances only:
- In the event that the member fails on two separate occasions to respond to a request by the Authority to confirm his/her continued membership which request is conveyed to the member by the Authority addressing the request to all the contact numbers/addresses provided by the member.
The fact that membership is terminated by the Authority in this manner does not in anyway prevent that person from reapplying for membership at anytime thereafter.
