Application for Leave
Maternity , Special
Leave, Full time Study Leave, Unemployed (no paid work)
A Registered member may be granted leave from full membership
for home duties, maternity duties or similar circumstances.
special cases may be granted from time to time – such
as special leave for full time study or during other periods of
no paid employment (being employed part-time means a member will likely be ineligible for leave).
If a Registered Member is working in an un-related field the full membership fee still applies.
On Leave Status means that the member
retains all entitlements but at a reduced rate of membership. This
is usually half the fee paid by a full member, but may differ depending on the time in which the leave status applies.
This form of leave is not available to graduates
or students - only full members - and must be filled out completely to be considered for leave. Once completed the form should be emailed or sent to the AILA National Office for consideration.
Please note: If a Registered member does not apply for this concession, full fees will apply and leave will not be backdated.
On occasion a Registered Member may be undertaking a small amount of work when returning from leave, or may be studying under a scholorship etc.
Leave is unlikely to be granted if the member's total earnings for the financial year (including grants/ scholarships/ royalties/ paid employment, etc) exceeds $20,000.
Members who anticipate earning less than this amount per annum are encouraged to apply for AILA leave using one of the forms below.
