 Membership Terms and Conditions

SHPA Annual Membership Terms & Conditions

Single payment 
If making an annual one-off payment, the total amount will be collected on or immediately after your membership application is approved or your membership is renewed, and you will not incur any administration fees.

Instalment payments
If electing to pay by either half-yearly, quarterly or monthly instalments, you agree you are liable to pay the full annual instalment fees as outlined on the website. The cumulative total of instalment payments is higher than the one-off annual membership payment due to administration fees: www.shpa.org.au/joinrenew

When paying by instalments, you must enable the saved credit card and automatic payment options when processing your first payment. Your instalment payments will be processed monthly, quarterly or half-yearly from the date you complete this first payment. 

If an instalment payment fails, you will receive an invoice for payment. If payment is not received within one month of the due date you will be liable to pay the balance amount remaining on your 12-month membership.

After 12 months, your instalment-paying membership will automatically roll-over into the next year; SHPA will notify you of this via email in the month preceding your annual renewal roll-over.  

It is your responsibility to ensure:
•    you are authorised to request the debiting of payments from the specified account;
•    your nominated account can accept direct debits (your financial institution can confirm this);
•    on the payment date there are sufficient funds in the nominated account to enable debit payments to be made .

If you would like to discuss payment of your membership, please contact the Membership team at membership@shpa.org.au

Membership cancellation and refunds
Annual membership fees are not refundable, nor can they be transferred. When you join or renew your membership, you are committed to being a member of SHPA for 12 months. 

Instalment payment memberships can only be cancelled at the end of 12 months, or if you pay the balance amount remaining on your membership subscription.

To cancel your instalment-paying membership at the end of 12 months, advise SHPA when you are notified via email in the month preceding your annual renewal roll-over. 

Access to your membership benefits
SHPA members are granted access to all membership benefits for the period of their 12-month membership from the date their payment is processed (up to 5 business days after received). SHPA Member Benefits can be viewed here: www.shpa.org.au/member-benefits
If you do not renew your yearly membership or do not complete your instalment membership payments within one month of the due date you will lose access to your SHPA member benefits.  
Please note:
- SHPA's Specialty Practice: If you are a part of a Practice Group or Leadership Committee and your membership lapses you will no longer fit the criteria to be a part of these groups, you must have 12 months continuous membership to be eligible.
- CPD Central: If your membership lapses you will no longer have access to your CPD record or plan, to regain access SHPA membership must be reinstated. 
- Events: Eligibility for discounted event attendance relies on membership status at the date of the event. If you require a revised invoice for an event due to a forthcoming change in your membership, please contact the SHPA Secretariat to avoid being invoiced the outstanding difference.
