No, the NLCPA offers Associative Membership to those interested in the field of counselling and psychology, and supports the objectives of the Association.  How do I pay my membership fees? There are two ways to pay fees. The first, available only to Department of Education employees, is through automatic payroll deduction.  This is a one-time deduction made in December each year. The second way is to pay an annual fee via e-transfer cheque, money order in the fall of the year.  In order to remain a member, this fee must be made by October 15th of each year. Why am I asked for my Employee number?  Where can I find that? Your Employee Number is required for automatic payroll deduction.  This number can be found on your pay stub.  How do I know if I am a member? If you are a member, you should be receiving our e-mails and newsletters, as this is how the executive normally communicates with its members.  Check with the Membership coordinator by e-mail if you would like to check your status or update your e-mail. What if I want to stop automatic payroll deduction? If a member decides to stop automatic payroll deduction, the NLCPA executive must be notified prior to October 15th. When I retire, is my membership automatically cancelled? No, your membership is not cancelled.  Retirees continue to be valued members of our association and are encouraged to maintain their membership.  When you retire you are, removed from the automatic payroll deduction for members, however, consequently, you will be required to pay your fee via e-transfer, cheque or money order to maintain the benefits of membership.  As of 2016, the annual fee for a retired member is only $25.
