No, if your fees remain overdue College Council can remove you from the College Register under Ordinance Five, which states:
“The Council may determine that any member who is in arrears with any fee or subscription due from them for six months or more shall cease to be a member. Upon such determination being made, the member’s name shall be removed from the Register and they shall thereupon cease to be a member but shall nevertheless remain liable to pay to the College all fees or subscriptions due up to the date on which they cease to be a member”.
You will lose the right to use your designatory letters, where applicable, and to state that you are a member of the College. You will also lose the right to particiapate in College activities such as CPD, LEPT etc or receive any communications from us. Prior to removal those in arrears after a designated period will lose access to certain benefits such as CPD access so it is important to pay your fees promptly.
If you are having difficulties paying your fees, please contact the Membership Department as soon as possible. There is a possible hardship status, applicable for Fellows based in the UK only, if you are experiencing difficult financial issues and you would need to provide details to enable referral to the Chief Executive for consideration.
