B9   Retiring from membership


An analyst who has decided to retire from clinical practice of analytical psychology should inform the chair of the professional committee of their intention, and also provide the anticipated retirement date.


As a retired member we encourage you to continue to take part in the life of AJA in as many ways as possible. You are entitled to receive our regular mailings, join us in our winter celebrations, attend monthly meetings (in person or via the internet), and participate in other collective events.  We hope you may also be available to be called upon in an advisory capacity.


Retired members wishing to continue to participate in the life of AJA are asked to make a small contribution towards the cost of any mailings, payable each year.   Retired members over the age of 75 years are entitled to free membership of the IAAP.


The process for retirement:


The chair of the professional committee will arrange either to meet you in person or for you to meet with a colleague of your choice to provide you with an opportunity to talk through your decision to retire.  This may also provide the Association with the opportunity to learn from you before you leave, for you to reflect on your experiences with the Association, and for insights to be shared.


The chair of the professional committee will liaise appropriately concerning any unresolved practical or financial matters between you and the Association.


You will receive a letter from the Chair of the Association confirming your intention, and with your permission they will inform the membership of your retirement/resignation in the next mailing.


After any outstanding matters have been resolved we will ask how you wish your file to be closed.
