How to reinstate your membership
If you were previously a member of the Institute and this has lapsed, you are able to reinstate your membership level.
The membership reinstatement fee is $205AU, $245NZD for New Zealand members and $195AU for international members.
How to elect to membership without an Institute qualification
If you have not completed an ANZIIF course you are required to supply certified documentation supporting your application.
Make copies of the original documents for attachment to a membership application. Take the originals and copies to the person who is to certify them.
In Australia, a certified copy is one certified by a person before whom a statutory declaration may be made under the Statutory Declarations Act 1959 (eg. Police Officer, Doctor, Pharmacist). The certifier should be asked to ensure that their name, title (or other indication of their authority to certify documents) and date appear on each page of document certified.
If the copy is to be certified outside Australia, it should be certified by a person who is the equivalent of a Justice of the Peace or Commissioner for Declarations in that country (eg. a Notary Public).
As a professional association, the Institute reviews its membership criteria, benefits and eligibility requirements from time to time. All decisions on election to membership will reflect the requirements at the time of application; there is no guarantee of admission at the same level of membership that applied when you completed your studies.
