According to the ICSA Bye - law and HKICS Memorandum and Articles, members who have failed to pay their subscriptions within six months after the date fixed for payment will be excluded from membership and their names will be removed from the register of Members. Once removed, they are required to apply for re - election and settle the outstanding subscriptions plus re - election fees should they want to reinstate their membership.
With effect from 1 August 2012, lapsed members applying for re-election will not be required to settle all subscriptions in arrears. To encourage lapsed members to rejoin the Institute, re-elected members will be required to pay a total of three years' subscriptions plus the re-election fee under the new policy. The three years' subscriptions (based on current fees at the time of application) shall include:
i. subscription for the current year;
ii. subscription for the lapsed year; and
iii. an additional year of subscription to cover the year(s) in between i) and ii) above regardless of the length of the lapsed period
We understand that members might have reluctantly chosen not to renew their membership like sickness, unemployment, pregnancy, etc. This new re-election policy aims to encourage lapsed members to rejoin the Institute. Applications are to be approved by Membership Committee for Membership re-election (Fellows and Associates) and Graduateship re-election. The Membership Committee reserves the sole discretion in deciding the amount of the re-election fee in terms of the number of lapsed years it required a lapsed member/graduate to pay.
Ex - members will have to complete the re-election form with details of certified work experience since lapse of membership.
