The College is an incorporated society.  You automatically become a full member of the society if you are participating in the training or recertification programmes.  Full financial members can stand for the Executive Committee and have voting rights at AGM and SGM. The membership fee covers membership of the society and all services offered to those on the programmes.  You may opt out by emailing  Instead of a membership fee, you are charged a service provision fee, which is the same as the membership fee.

The membership fee is updated annually at the AGM in March.  The membership fee approved at the last AGM is $1230 (GST excl). We send a pro-rated membership invoice to someone joining any programme mid-year. Annual membership invoices are issued in early April. Instalment options are available.

Membership ceases if a membership invoice is not settled within three months of issue. At this point, accreditation or recertification services are revoked and MCNZ informed. We recommend contacting us if payment is unlikely within the timeframe, so that we can work with you on suitable options.

Refunds when pausing or cancelling membership

Registrars should read the page on pausing training, and Fellows the page on pausing recertification.

If you inform us around membership renewal time that you plan to place training or recertification on a long pause, we will issue a pro-rated invoice for the months that you are active. Anyone who has not settled their membership invoice who subsequently informs the College that they wish to cancel place training or recertification on a long pause will receive a pro-rated invoice for the months from April to the date we received notification.


  • Inform us in April that you intend to withraw or go onto a long pause on 1 July, your membership invoice will be for the months of April, May, and June.
  • Inform us in July that you wish withraw or go onto a long pause, and your annual membership is not paid, your membership invoice (after the credit is applied) will be for the months of April, May, and June.
