Resignation in Good Standing

Registrants 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 registrant you may make an application to reinstate within three (3) years of the resignation date upon payment of the (pro-rated) annual registration fee plus a reinstatement fee for the year in which you seek reinstatement.  After three (3) years of the resignation date, you must submit a new application for registration. No refunds or credits given on dues already paid.  Take note that those resigned will have their name listed under 'Former BCIA Registrants' as per PGA directives.
