This guide will help you through the online annual 2020-2021 member dues process. Please read it carefully as we made changes to the way you pay your annual dues and to the member dues reduction categories.
The Annual Member Dues Process: What You Can Expect
- Your 2020-2021 member dues have been re-set to full member dues (BC Resident-Prime).

- As part of the membership dues process, you will be asked to update your contact information, confirm your CPABC Chapter, and communication preferences. New this year is an annual voluntary Indigenous Self-Identification Questionnaire.
What To Prepare Beforehand

- Access to a printer to print your dues notice.
- Credit card to pay your member dues through CPABC’s secure online payment system.
How To Pay Your Member Dues
