Annual Renewal FAQs 2019

What is the Annual Renewal?

All ICAS members are required to renew their membership each year. This includes making payment for your fees, confirming your professional declaration and updating your personal details. This process was previously known as the Annual Return.

Do all members have to complete the Annual Renewal?

All ICAS members will be asked to complete their Annual Renewal. Members who have an on-going exemption from CPD are not required to complete the Annual Renewal, but are highly recommended to do so.

When do I need to complete my Annual Renewal?

You should complete your Annual Renewal as soon as possible once it has been released to you. The deadline for completion is 1 January 2019. If you have not completed your Annual Renewal by this date, an administration charge may be applied, and your continued membership may be at risk.

I do not want to renew my membership, what do I do?

If you do not wish to continue your membership of ICAS, you should email Central Registry as soon as possible to let us know that you wish to resign. It is helpful for ICAS if you can give a brief explanation of your reason for resigning as this provides valuable feedback. If you do not inform us of your intention to resign, you will continue to be contacted by ICAS regarding completion of your Annual Renewal.

I am a new member of ICAS, do I need to complete the Annual Renewal?

All members of ICAS who were admitted before 30 September 2018 are required to complete their Annual Renewal by 1 January 2019, including making payment for subscription fees.

If you were admitted after 30 September 2018 and have already paid your 2019 subscription fees, you may not be required to complete your Annual Renewal this year. However, you should still confirm that all your details are up-to-date.

Any other questions?

Please see our Annual Renewal page if you need more information or are looking to renew.

If you can't find an answer for your question, you can contact Central Registry for help with any aspect of your membership renewal, including your subscription payment.
