Renew my membership
Our subscription period for all members except eAffiliates runs from the 1 May to 30 April each year, and you'll receive an invoice by post for your renewal fee shortly after the 1 May. If you are an eAffiliate, you'll be notified by email when your membership is due for renewal. For Associate Members and Fellows, if you're not on our discounted 'Retired' or 'Life' membership rates you'll also need to make your CPD declaration.

You can make your subscription fee payment using any of these methods:

Please don't suffer in silence! We understand that circumstances can change so the best thing you can do is get in touch with us. You can call us in confidence on +44 (0)20 7847 2529, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Make your CPD Declaration
If you are an Associate Member or a Fellow you will need to make a CPD declaration each year to complete your renewal. At this stage you do not need to submit your record, just confirm if you have undertaken CPD.
Certain categories of member are excluded from this process, and you won't need to make a declaration if you:
- Are currently paying one of our discounted 'Retired' or 'Life' membership rates
- Completed an ACT qualification within the last year, or are currently studying for one
If you are currently working for a CPD accredited employer, you will still need to confirm that you are working at that employer - you can do this using the declaration link below.
How can I make my declaration?
Making your declaration is easy, and only takes one minute - you do not need to submit supporting documents, you only need to confirm that you have been performing CPD for the relevant period.
I think I may be exempt from declaring - how do I check?
If you are an eAffiliate, Student Member or Affiliate Member you do not need to make a declaration.
If you are an Associate Member or Fellow, and you do not fall into one of the two exemption categories above (Retired / Life member or recently completed / currently studying an ACT qualification) it's likely that you'll need to make a declaration. If you are still unsure you can simply get in touch with us via email at email@example.com or call +44 (0)20 7847 2529 and we'll be happy to help.
I think I have already declared but I'm not sure - how do I check?
You can see your current declaration status by clicking the declaration link above - if you've already declared then the system will show that you have done so. If not, you'll be able to make your declaration quickly and easily.
