Announcement from the Repatterning Practitioners Association to Student Practitioners, January 26, 1011

“Revised Special Offer for Student Practitioners Whose Membership Has Lapsed

We realize that the special Student Practitioner reinstatement offer and the terms of the Grace period that previously appeared on the website along with the Lapsed Student Practitioner Membership Policy were contradictory.

We apologize for this lack of coherence. We believe that you will be pleased with the clarified terms of the Grace period.

All Student Practitioners who currently have lapsed memberships (more than one year past renewal date) have a grace period from now until June 30, 2011 to reinstate their Student Practitioner Membership in the RPA.

During this time, all of the work that they have done towards their Certification requirements will be counted regardless of whether or not they were an active member when the work was done or tutorial observations were received.

During the grace period, these Student Practitioners’ financial responsibilities are for the payment of:

  • dues for the current year
  • $100.00 reinstatement fee
  • $125.00 one time only Certification fee that they have never paid if they became part of the I-Declare Certification program December 31, 2005 or earlier.

During the grace period, when a person with a lapsed Student Practitioner membership is reinstated, they need to take their CEU course work within one year of their membership renewal date.

On July 1, 2011 the full Policy for Reinstatement of Student Practitioner Membership, approved September 1, 2010, will go into effect.
