Elder Planning Counselor Membership Renewal Fees
Like any Professional Designation, there is an annual membership fee. The first year membership fee is waived with the cost of tuition. These membership fees are used to keep the materials current and maintain the program.
Membership fees are also used to help offset the costs of the Elder Planning Issues Conferences (EPIC) that we hold should the EPC choose to attend.
As a member in good standing, the EPC is also entitled to access the EPC member’s website that contains timely messages, tips, “My Pulse”, hotel, car discounts, access to expertise, resource library, promotional information brochures for clients, press releases, elder specific resources as well as customized Certificate of Completion frames and reduced membership in the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) which includes the Zoomer magazine.
An EPC also has access to our Faculty if they have any questions pertaining to any of the subjects that are covered in the EPC program. Many EPCs have found this to be a tremendous benefit when they are asked certain questions by their aging clientele.
As the EPC program continues to grow, more benefits will be added.
The current membership renewal fee is $150 + applicable taxes for your Province of residence.
EPC Membership Renewal dues can be paid annually or on a monthly basis.
As an EPC member, part of the renewal process is to have 30 CE credits on a yearly basis just like any other professional designation.
If your current occupation requires you to have Continuing Education credits, to maintain your various licences, then we accept those credits as fulfilling your CE credit requirement to maintain your EPC Designation.
If you are in an occupation that does not require you to have Continuing Education credits, to maintain your various licenses, then you do not require CE credits to maintain your EPC Designation.
