To maintain Professional Membership it is a requirement of all members to proactively participate in professional development opportunities every calendar year. The QGCA will audit a select number of members annually.

To maintain Professional Membership members must: Undertake at least 15 hours of approved continuing professional development in each calendar year.

In the event of a member being unable to meet the professional development requirements to maintain their current membership due to serious long-term illness, extended leave or other exceptional circumstances, the Executive Committee may decide to vary this requirement for that member for a set period of time or offer the member an alternative category of membership.
