Sec. 5. MEMBER IN GOOD STANDING
For purposes of election, a member in good standing is an active member whose accounts with the Institute are current and membership dues are fully paid. Whenever membership in good standing is required for purposes of qualification or eligibility in any PICPA activity and there is no specific cut-off date provided in these By-Laws within which the members may pay their dues, the Board of Directors shall be empowered to set such date. Members in good standing shall also include Sustaining Life Members and Honorary Life Members.
N.B. PICPA members who have updated membership dues as of March 15, 2021 can vote.
Sec. 6. CHAPTER MEMBERS AND SECTOR MEMBERS
Every member of PICPA shall be both a member of a Chapter and a member of a Sector. A CPA shall be a member of the Chapter of the province or city where his residence or place of business is located. At the time of registration, a CPA shall also elect to be a member of a sector regardless of his chapter affiliation. In no case shall any CPA be a member of more than one (1) chapter or transfer to another chapter three (3) months before or after the elections. A CPA shall be a member of only one (1) Sector of his preference: changes in Sector affiliation shall be allowed only every three (3) years except in meritorious circumstances as allowed in the uniform rules to be approved by the National Board (amended on November 26, 2005).
