Do You Qualify for Professional Leave?

Changes in your career path or personal circumstances shouldn’t prevent you from maintaining your membership. We offer Professional Leave to members who are not currently working in a full-time position where they are engaged in professional activities that qualify as acceptable work experience. Professional Leave reduces your membership fee from USD 299 to USD 100.

Professional Leave is available for the following circumstances:

  • Change of profession (outside of the investment industry)
  • Family, health, personal matters
  • Unemployment
  • Full-time student
  • Retired

The Professional Leave option is available only to current members or those who have been members in the past. New members are not eligible for Professional Leave.

If you meet the requirements for Professional Leave, update your membership status with us, and the reduced rate will be reflected in your transaction the next time you renew your membership. Society rates vary by society.
