Are you a sole practitioner? If yes, you’ll be pleased to know APEGA is simplifying the annual dues process, and your dues will be a flat rate of $250, plus GST, starting on July 1, 2019.
When APEGA changed its dues calculation for permit holders in 2017, we used the same calculation for all permit holders, which is:
Permit Holder Dues = $500 x √# of Members Employed + GST
After two years, we’ve had an opportunity to review our internal processes, and realized that simplification should occur. To make the process easier for our sole practitioners, Council approved the flat rate in December 2018 with an implementation date of July 1, 2019.
A sole practitioner is defined as:
- a permit holder for which the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and the Responsible Member are the same person and, therefore, an APEGA member and the only member listed on the permit.
- a permit holder for which the COO is not an APEGA member and the Responsible Member is the only APEGA member listed on the permit.
If you qualify as a sole practitioner, the flat rate will be applied to your permit automatically. Also, from that date on, you no longer need to apply for a dues reduction—the lower price will automatically be applied.
