Looking Back Through Our Century: July 1956
With our renewal period well underway, we wanted to share a poem from 1956 when the Association took to humour to remind members to pay their dues. Most of you have already renewed for 2021, but if you haven't yet, please do so before you are no longer in good standing and your name is removed from the Association's register as a member. Need a good laugh? Check out the poem on our news story. You won't want to miss this one!
Affiliation with an Association Chapter
Did you know that all practitioners can affiliate with an Association chapter? If you were affiliated with a chapter before renewing your membership, you are invited to reconfirm your affiliation with any of the Association's chapters through your online member profile. Affiliation with a chapter is not exclusively based on ethnicity or location. Anyone can join any chapter for mutual support, networking, and special events. Choose a chapter and get involved today!
