As most of you are aware, 1 July 2018 the CMPA made changes to the CMPA Membership, Departure Gift, and Retired Credentials bylaws which made it easier to become and remain a member in good standing of the CMPA and be eligible for departure gifts and retired MP credentials.
Changes to membership
The following were the changes made and the cut off dates associated with the changes
Any regular member who has paid dues for at least five (5) consecutive years will automatically become a Lifetime member by submitting Annex A to By Law #1. You must apply for your Lifetime membership prior to 31 Dec 19. After this date, you will be required to apply as a new member.
Any regular member who has previously received a CMPA departure gift or Retired MP credentials will become a Lifetime member upon submitting Annex A to CMPA By Law #1 and there will not be any further cost.
Any regular member who has either missed annual payments or paid their dues sporadically, is considered to be a member NOT in good standing. In order to be a member in good standing, you have until 31 Dec 19 to pay a one-time payment of $125. submit your application and will then become a Lifetime member.
Anyone who wishes to join the CMPA for the first time can pay a one-time fee of $250 and become a lifetime CMPA member.
Anyone who is on a MP QL3 or MPOC course will receive a discount of $50.
At the recent Executive meeting, it was decided to extend the cut off date by one year - therefore you have to 31 Dec 2020 to join at the introductory price.
