2. A Certified member who wishes to change their membership status to Inactive status must provide a petition to become inactive fax to (905) 946-1517 or e-mail at info@ontarioathletictherapists. com
3. Proceed in updating your membership profile page. The mandatory registration renewal form will appear in your membership profile. Please complete prior to proceeding to payment. A member who by-passes the registration renewal form and proceeds to payment will not be deemed to have successfully completed the full registration renewal. Again, registration renewal is a two-step process. Both steps are mandatory. Payment without completion of the registration form is an incomplete renewal.
5. Confirm membership level amount then click on “Confirm and Proceed with Payment” with a credit card. Credit card information must be identical to your mailing address on file with your credit card provider.
Note: There is a $50 fee associated with this petitioning process. Your petition will be reviewed by the OATA Secretary and the Board Members for approval. If approved, you will be instructed by e-mail to pay the inactive membership dues of $132.78 (HST Incl.). Please note that you will also be required to petition the Board again when reinstating. If that petition is approved by the Board the fee payable for reinstatement is $100. As well, a member may request inactive membership for no less than 6 months and no greater than 12 months. (The Association is not an employer so it does not offer Maternity or Paternity leave. A member can request inactive.) For reinstatement please fill out and send the OATA Petition for Reinstatement Inactive Form to the OATA secretary through the same process as inactive above.
