Membership Renewal

Preserve and Maintain Your Certifications

The membership year runs from July 1st through June 30th.  To avoid late fees, your dues payment must be received by June 30th each year.  We know that, here in Central Division, by June 30th your skis and boards have likely been put away and your attention has turned to summer sports, time on the lake, cook outs and bug spray.  So mark your calendar to renew as early as possible.  Generally, online renewal is open in April and paper renewal notices are mailed in May.

We strongly encourage you to renew online.  There’s no worrying about whether the USPS will deliver your check by the deadline and you receive immediate confirmation of your renewal.

*Timely renewal saves you money, protects your certification(s), provides continuous member benefits, and keeps you eligible for anniversary pins.

If you have let your membership lapse/are delinquent in your dues you will need to complete a Reinstatement Form


Reinstate Expired Membership and Certification

Nationwide Reinstatement Policy

The following reinstatement process gives former PSIA-AASI members a path to return to active
certified membership. The reinstatement process provides former members a path to return to
active membership without loss of their prior certification level. The reinstatement process can occur at any time during the year and is standardized for all disciplines.

This process is not required if educational units are current at the time of reinstatement.
Members also have the option of going through the certification process if they would like
another way to become an active certified member.


Less than 2 years lapsed:

Members who have missed a year of membership dues are required to pay current dues and those in arrears, along with late fees.

Members must be in compliance with continuing education requirements at the time of renewal. e.g. A member who lapses in membership but is current in education may become due for education in the year of reinstatement without penalty.

A member who failed to renew while delinquent in education will be assessed an education penalty for each year in which they were delinquent, up to the policy below.

2-4 Year Membership Lapse:

Members will be required to pay a $200 reinstatement fee as well as the current year’s dues. Members will be required to earn 6 CEUs for each year they have not paid dues (up to 24 CEU’s). Member card will state “inactive” until CEU requirements are completed.

Members who wish to transistion to inactive certified status must fulfill guidelines for inactive members (See Below). The person’s membership card will indicate updated status upon completion of CEU requirement.

5 Years or More Lapsed Membership:

Members will be required to pay a $300 reinstatement fee as well as the current year’s dues. Members will be required to earn 24 CEUs within two seasons. Members will be responsible for working with – and getting approval from – their division for their personal recertification plan. The person’s membership card will show inactive certified status until their personal recertification plan is complete.

*Individuals wishing to re-join PSIA-AASI can do so as an Alumni member if they meet qualifications or as a Registered (Uncertified) Member.

Your original join date will be reset to your date of reinstatement.

Individuals wishing to re-join PSIA-AASI as an Alumni member must have an original join date of at least 10-years prior. Alumni members will be excused from continuing education requirements and their certifications will be inactive. View our page on Alumni Membership for the full details.

All memberships, regardless of their reinstatement date, are up for renewal in June and will expire June 30th if not renewed.

Inactive Members:

Inactive Members are those who wish to maintain their connection to professional snowsports instruction, yet are not currently actively teaching. An inactive member may remain inactive for four years without earning continuing education, and return to active status by enrolling in and completing CEU’s in the fifth season (6 CEU’s, and then falling into a regular continuing education plan). A Member may request a second inactive period of up to 4 years, so long as they have attained 12 CEU’s between 4 year cycles of inactivity.
