Navigating Leaves of Absence
Continuing Professional Development, Dues, and Practicing Status Options
June 7, 2023 — 2:30-3:45 p.m.
In this session, attendees will hear from APEGA on what to do during a variety of life events that may interrupt their professional practice for a limited period of time. Professionals may need to take a break from the professions for many reasons. This session will discuss some of the most common circumstances, including parental, health, disability, educational, and unemployment leaves. We will discuss options available to professionals to continue meeting their registrant obligations while navigating these leaves of absence. We will also discuss scenarios in which a professional is working outside Alberta or venturing onto a new career path. In addition to discussing options for professional dues and continuing professional development requirements, we will review the implications of declaring a non-practising status. Join us for this panel discussion and Q&A.
