Membership Renewal Process

STEP #1 - Purchase Your Professional Liability Insurance

 

You would have received an email from ProLink on November 4 containing YOUR PERSONALIZED link to be able to purchase your insurance coverage.  Completing your insurance purchase will take approximately 10 minutes.

 

Insurance is required only for AKA Membership.  Insurance is not required for Student, Affiliate, or Go Inactive Memberships.

If your application is not flagged for review you will receive an email containing your new documentation (Receipt, Policy Documents and Certificate of Insurance).  
 

 Membership Renewal Fee

  • November 30 - December 31 = $195
  • January 1 - January 30 = $275
  • February 1 onward: *Expired membership fee* of $100 and reapplication required.
    • To process, please email: Info@albertakinesiology.ca

 

Expired memberships beyond January 30 of the given renewal year will face a $100 fee and must provide proof of previous membership prior to regaining active membership status. This is implemented as a means to prevent any kinesiologists from practicing without an active membership status and null and void insurance.

In order to pay this fee:

1) Please e-transfer $100 (CAD): treasurer@albertakinesiology.ca

2) In your e-transfer, please add note: Reactivate expired membership

NOTE: Once your e-transfer has been sent, a confirmation email will be sent within 2-3 business days.

 

Maternity Leave/Extended Absence

If you are a practicing kinesiologist registered with the AKA, you can change your membership status to inactive if you are planning to go on a maternity leave or extended absence. This will prevent you from having to re-apply as an expired membership and face a $100 reapplication fee. This fee is set in place to prevent any kinesiologists from practicing without an active membership status and null and void insurance. 

 

Those wishing to change their active membership status to inactive will receive a free inactive membership and refund on their membership dues as follows:

$100 from Jan – March

$50 from April – August

$0 from August – Dec

 

An inactive membership maintains its status until the member decides to reactive their account upon renewal.
