I am retiring at the end of the year. My employer is offering early retirements. I contacted APA and they have three criteria you must meet in order to be "offically retired' from the profession which are listed below. I am not 65 years old and now I don't know what to do. I have no desire to have to maintain all those credits to continue to be in AICP and no particular desire to pay full-time dues. I am not going back into the profession, I will be teaching developmental algebra at the community college. Any ideas as to what I should do????
VERIFICATION OF RETIRED STATUS
APA: I am a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners.
I verify that (check all that apply):
I am 65 years old or older
I am completely retired and do not engage in any profession, business, or trade
(this excludes part-time non-planning or nonprofessional work)
I have been an active and continuous APA or AICP member for the past 10 or more years
Name APA ID
If I checked all three boxes, I meet the criteria for retirement. Please update my member record to indicate
that I am retired.
As a retired member, I understand that I will be exempt from AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) requirements.
