Cessation of Membership

Resignation

A Member may at any time by giving written notice to the Chief Executive Officer, resign their Membership of the Association but shall continue to be liable for any Annual Subscription and all arrears due and unpaid at the date of resignation and for all other monies due to the Association and in addition for any sum not exceeding one hundred dollars ($100.00) for which there is liability as a Member of the Association under Rule 7 of the Association’s Constitution.

Once your Membership is cancelled, you will be removed from the Register of Members. Only a person named on the Membership (i.e. Duly Appointed Representative or another authorised person) may request the resignation of a Membership. Membership fees, once paid and processed, are not refundable. However ASIAL will consider refund requests that are made in writing to the Accounts Department in the following circumstances:

1. Where an error has been made by the banking facility which results in an overpayment being made;
2. Where ASIAL makes an error during application processing;
3. Where application is refused by ASIAL;
4. Under exceptional circumstances. All applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis and the decision by ASIAL is final.

Inability to pay debts

Any Member who shall become bankrupt or insolvent or execute an assignment of their property for the benefit of creditors and any Member being a corporation who shall go into compulsory or voluntary liquidation save for the purposes of reconstructions, shall upon such bankruptcy, insolvency, execution, assignment or liquidation cease to be a Member unless such Member can satisfy the Board that their inability to pay debts arose from misfortune and that no discreditable conduct can be imputed to them.
