Membership application

To apply for membership, you need to login or create an account. Once logged in, go to My Profile, ensure that your profile information is complete, and choose New/Change Membership in the left-hand menu. Follow the steps in the checklist table and navigate through the screens to submit your application.

If you are applying for the FCIA designation, please review the following documentation:

Five-year expiry on professionalism education credit for membership
Candidates must complete the membership eligibility requirements and be confirmed as an ACIA within five years of completing the CIA professionalism requirement. This also applies for former members who have let their membership lapse and who wish to be reinstated, either as an ACIA or FCIA. Current members of the CIA who maintain their membership in good standing will not lose their professionalism education credit.
