The CMA offers a variety of membership discounts for new and existing (upgrading) Members, in order to assist with cost reduction in the initial stages of becoming a new practitioner or setting up a new clinic location.

Please see below for the various categories and costs.

NB: ALL membership fees are pro-rated to a quarterly figure so that those that join throughout the year are not charged a full 12 months of fees.  This also enables all members to undergo annual renewal at the same time each year.  The CMA membership year runs from April to March.

This applies to existing CMA Student Members upon graduation and application to upgrade to Full Membership.

* This offer only applies to existing students if upgrades are processed within 3 months of graduating.

REINSTATEMENT MEMBERSHIPS

Applicants that have previously held a CMA membership are eligible to apply for reinstatement of their previous membership. 

A $25 fee applies for all non-renewed memberships past 21 days over-due.

An archive recovery fee of $30 applies for non-financial and closed memberships in excess of 1 month.

An archive recovery and reassessment fee of $45 applies for closed memberships in excess of 1 year.

Reinstatement applications are not eligible for discounts.

If the previous membership has been non-financial in excess of 24 months, a new application may be required and current membership minimum entry requirements must be met.  Should a previous qualification be held that does not meet current entry standards, an application may be made to the Board of Directors for assessment under the CMA’s Equivalency Standards Policy as enacted in October 2007.
