APNA Membership Instalment and Refund Policy

Our memberships run from 1 April to 31 March each year. A minimum of one term is required before this contract may be terminated (this includes any pro-rata membership payments).

Membership can be cancelled in March at the end of the membership year.

By going through our online join form, you agree to membership until 31 March, and by raising an invoice, payment is required.


The Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) offers the option to pay the annual membership fee in monthly instalments. Members who choose this option authorise APNA to deduct the monthly membership fee for a minimum term until 31 March.

The monthly membership fee will be one-twelfth of the total annual membership. If insufficient funds are available in your bank account, penalty rates charged by the financial institution will be charged to you.

Members who pay via monthly instalment authorise APNA to deduct the remaining balance of their annual membership fee every month as directed in this application or by other means where appropriate, in the event membership is cancelled before 31 March.

By electing to pay by instalments, you also opt to have your membership automatically rolled over into the forthcoming year, authorising APNA to continue deducting membership fees for another 12 months. Instalments can be cancelled in March at the end of the membership year.


APNA will not generally issue membership refunds. Refunds may be made under exceptional circumstances at APNA’s discretion. An administrative fee may apply. Submissions for a refund must be made to membership@apna.asn.au.

Transfer of membership

Memberships are non-transferable. The exception is with Organisation memberships, where the staff member has left the organisation’s employment, and a new person has been appointed to the role. This new staff member resumes membership.
