Annual membership renewals

PACFA memberships expire on 30 June each year, and all members are required to renew their registration annually between May and July. Clinical and Provisional members must demonstrate each year that they have met the Membership and Registration Renewal Requirements for ongoing professional development and supervision.

How to renew

Each year, PACFA sends members an email when renewals have opened. To begin your renewal, log in to your PACFA Portal via 'MEMBER LOGIN'Complete your CPD and Supervision logs if you have not already done so, and the orange 'Renew now' button will appear on your profile. Watch the 'How to complete your logs' video.

For a step-by-step breakdown on how to renew, please watch the 2021 Instructional Renewal Video here. 

Registrants who are individual members of PACFA must pay an annual membership fee but registrants who are members through a PACFA Member Association do not pay a fee to PACFA.

If you are not able to complete your renewal online, please contact the PACFA Office at [email protected] to request a paper renewal form. Applying via the paper application form involves an additional administration fee.

Registrants no longer need to submit evidence of their Continuing Professional Development and Supervision hours at the time of renewal but you must keep evidence in your Professional Portfolio. CPD and supervision hours will be audited at least once every three years in accordance with PACFA's Audit Guidelines. See Register Audits for details.

PACFA response to the COVID-19 pandemic
