2019 APPI and CIP Member Renewal Invoices
The 2019 member renewal invoices will be issued via email on the week of December 10, 2018. Those invoices will include the 2019 APPI fees, CIP fees, and the Professional Liability Insurance premium (for Candidate and RPP Members). As per Bylaw Amendment 2017-1, membership with CIP is no longer mandatory for APPI members and at renewal time members are annually provided with the opportunity to decline CIP membership. To opt out of CIP membership, please email [email protected], and you will be issued a revised 2019 member renewal invoice with the 2019 CIP fees
removed. Any APPI member who opts out of CIP membership for 2019 may at any time during 2019 or beyond, upon request to APPI, be reinstated as a member of CIP with no additional re-application or re-certification process or fees.
It is important to note that while a member in any APPI class may opt out of CIP membership for 2019, regulated members who opt out should consider the following:
1. Right to the Registered Professional Planner (RPP) professional designation and protected title will be retained, but those opting out of CIP will cease to have the right to use MCIP, which is not required to maintain regulated professional practice in the APPI jurisdiction.
2. Participation in the APPI Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) Program will remain mandatory.
3. Compliance with the APPI Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) program will remain mandatory.
All APPI regulated members, even those who opt out of CIP membership, will continue to report their CPL activities using the CIP reporting system.
