Supporting Members transitioning to Alumni Membership

Apply for the Alumni category if you are retiring from practice within the ATRA Membership Year and / or have moved out of Alberta and want to maintain support for the objectives of the TR profession in Alberta.

Please do not apply for this membership category if you are not working in the TR field but intend to return to employment in this field at some point in the future. Your options are to renew as a supporting member or let your membership lapse. Please see information in the Return to Practice pathway. 

Transferring to an Alumni Membership is a permanent decision. You are relinquishing your Supporting Membership.
