Membership Renewals

The Speech Pathology Australia membership year is changing!

Speech Pathology Australia (the Association) is changing its membership year from the calendar year to the financial year 1 July—30 June.

From 1 July 2018, the Association’s membership year will follow the financial year i.e. 1 July to 30 June. This will supersede the current calendar year.

The reasons for this change are many including feedback from members that the end of calendar year is often challenging financially and has its time constraints with many on holidays. The SPA office also closes over the Christmas period so changing the renewal period will allow more support to members at this time. It also ties in with claiming the total cost of membership as a tax deduction.

As part of the transition to the new financial year you have two options for renewing your membership.

Each option impacts on how you calculate and submit your PSR points if you are a Certified Practising member.

If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact our friendly membership team for assistance by email or telephone or 1300 368 835.
