ADRIC Policy for Retiring Chartered / Qualified Members:
ADRIC and the Affiliates offer retired members the opportunity to hold their Chartered designation(s) at no annual fee provided that they are fully retired from the workplace and maintain a retired membership category with the provincial or regional affiliate. In such cases, the designation would be modified as follows: C.Med(Ret); C.Arb(Ret). This is ADRIC’s way of honouring our long-term designated members. You must maintain Retired (or ADRIA LINK) membership with your regional Affiliate and you must sign an agreement to reinstate your full membership and designation if you engage in any paid dispute resolution services. Please complete the Retiring Chartered Member form/agreement and send via email to your to email@example.com, copying your affiliate.
NEW for Qualified designation holders: Those retired members holding a Q.Med and/or Q.Arb may now retain their designation by continuing to pay the nominal annual fee ($99) along with their retired membership fee, however CEE reporting is not required. You must maintain Retired (or ADRIA LINK) membership with your regional Affiliate, and you must sign an agreement to reinstate your full membership and designation if you engage in any paid dispute resolution services. Please complete the Retiring Qualified Member form/agreement and send via email to your to firstname.lastname@example.org, copying your affiliate.
As a retired member, your ADR Connect profile will no longer be visible to the public.
These retired designation categories are not available to members on a temporary basis – those who are are facing financial hardship or serious health issues may apply to have their designation “paused” until the end of the calendar year. Please contact ADRIC for more information.
