Membership Dues & Member Checklists

Membership invoices have been sent out and were due by Jan 31 2021. If you have not received yours or would like to change your payment frequency please contact Chelsea.

Many cheques are still being sent to the previous Association address in Didsbury. These will not be forwarded and will need to be cancelled and reissued to our updated mailing address (changed in February 2020). Please update your accounting departments accordingly.

Please ensure all members have filled out the Contractor/Supplier Checklists that were sent out in January so all files can be kept up to date. Contractors: Please ensure all proof of insurances and COR/SECOR have been sent to Chelsea as well. All contractor members have until the end of 2021 to start their COR/SECOR certification.
