Q.1 What happens to my membership if I change my employment, within the RMA membership year, and start work for a non institutional member?

A. You retain your individual membership status and benefits for the remainder of the RMA Australia Membership if your new employer is current Institutional Member. It is however your responsibility to advise the RMA of your changed contact details.
