INTRODUCTION OF MIPS VALID MEMBERSHIP CERTIFICATES
In an effort to be in line with the new MIPS Act No. 3 of 2016 and also ensuring compliance to good practice for member based organisation, the Board approved that with effect from 1st January 2018 all membership certificates should carry a validity period which should be indicated on each certificate that is issued to anyone who renews his/her member.
From 1st January 2018 all new members and renewals will carry the validity period of 1st January to 31st December 2018.
Members may also wish to be reminded that membership renewals and any new applications have to be made within the period of 1st January to 31st March every year and thereafter at the end of April the institute is mandated to publish in the print media the names of those that have renewed their membership or have joined as new members. You may also wish to appreciate that once inspection and monitoring of members commences, the certificates will also play a very important role in the process.
It will therefore be important that each members ensures that s/he gets her/his membership certificate after renewing membership. For those that renew their membership late in the year, certificate will be issued but will still expire on the 31st December each year
We have tentatively produced schedule on when certificates will be made available considering that the printing of certificates is outsourced.
The schedule for 2018 Valid Membership Certificates dispatching is as follows
1st Dispatch 16 February, 2018 For members to have paid annual subscription fees by 31st January, 2018
2nd Dispatch 16 March, 2018 For members to have paid annual subscription fees by 28th February, 2018
3rd Dispatch 13 April, 2018 For members to have paid annual subscription fees by 31st March, 2018
Please members should ensure that they get and send a copy of the deposit slip when after sending the money through e-transactions through this emails [email protected]. Receipt shall thereafter be issued promptly.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
