Members intending to resign from the Institute must complete the Resignation in Good Standing form. This avoids any additional penalties if you wish to return to the Institute. As a resigned member you may make an application for reinstatement within five years of the resignation date upon payment of the pro-rated fees for the year in which you seek reinstatement. After five years of the resignation date, you must submit a new application for registration. No refunds or credits given on dues already paid.
