Overcoming COVID-19 Together: 50% Rebate of Annual Membership Subscription
Dear Fellow ASPRI Members,
We are going through an unprecedented global health crisis which is affecting both people and businesses. ASPRI is monitoring the situation closely to keep you informed.
We understand many members are facing a lot of issues. As an Association, this is the time to do more for our members. Drawing from our reserves kept for rainy days and as a sign of solidarity and support, ASPRI will provide all existing corporate and associate members who joined us before 31 March 2020, a one-off, 50% annual membership subscription fee rebate (FY April 2020 to March 2021). This decision is expected to cost ASPRI approximately $320,000 and run us into a deficit in the financial year. However, my Executive Council believes every bit helps at this critical time.
A refund will be made to those who paid while a credit note will be issued after 1 April 2020 to those who have yet to. To facilitate the refund process, members have to fill up the appended ‘Direct Credit Authorisation’ form if not done so previously.
Rest assured, ASPRI is working closely with the government to see how we can help members. Please stay in communication with our Secretariat Team. Do come forward with your suggestions on how we can assist you further.
I wish you and your loved ones good health and hope that you remain safe over the coming weeks.
We are all in this together.
ASPRI 12th Executive Council
