Lapsed Membership

A member’s NZAS membership may lapse for a variety of reasons including:

  • A member chooses not to continue with their membership and offers their resignation to the Society

  • A member fails to pay their annual membership fee

  • A member fails to meet their CEP and/or Peer Review requirements at the end of a three-year cycle


Guidelines for Inactive & Lapsed Memberships >

Re-joining as an Audiologist/Audiometrist Member

For those who have previously resigned from the NZAS, or where their membership has lapsed, as opposed to those who have reactivated their membership after a period of being an inactive member.

  • A lapsed member must first submit an application to re-join including details of qualifications, CCC and previous work experience.

  • A re-joining application fee of $1,000 plus GST will be charged.

  • At the discretion of the Executive Council the candidate may be required to repeat all, or part of, the CCC process.

  • Re-joining members must sit an OSCE exam and will be charged at the current fee for this examination.

  • In the event of a failure of the exam, the candidate is entitled to a re-sit. If the candidate fails a second time, they may be eligible for another re-sit or they may be required to join NZAS as a provisional member and complete the full CCC process.

  • If a resigned member re-joins and is out of sync with the current CEP 3-year cycle they need to collect 20, 40 or 60 points depending on when within the 3-year cycle they re-joined.
