I am not a member of ACAA but would like to apply for accredited membership. I do not know any other members to propose and second my application. I know each of them must be accredited members. What can I do?

Even though you may have the minimum six years prior experience to qualify as an accredited member you must have a proposer and seconder to nominate you.

The best way would be to apply for associate membership and in your application make a request to the Secretary to have ACAA nominate a proposer and seconder on your behalf.

If accepted as an associate member you are required to participate in at least three years of the Continuing Professional Development program (this can be retrospective allowing qualifying after twelve months) and if necessary seek out mentoring with other accredited members willing to assist.

Through networking you should then be able to source nominators to propose and second your upgrade to an accredited member.
