Dues and Fees in Arrears:
FABI Membership may be terminated if money owed to FABI exceeds 30-days past due.
Unpaid fees will be deducted from renewal dues before being applied to renewal dues; this may result in non-member status until renewal dues balance is paid.
Members may decline to renew by writing to the board of directors, stating their reason. The board, at its sole discretion, may allow a member to renew within a two (2) year period (24 months) and not require full re-application.
Refunds: As a policy, no fees shall be refunded unless the applicant is rejected. The board of directors may be petitioned in writing, in cases of hardship, for a refund of unused money, by any current member in good standing.
The purpose of FABI is to continually update the knowledge of its membership. FABI will provide regular educational conferences in order to assure itself that members in all classifications (except affiliate) achieve regular input toward their continuing education. A minimum number of annual continuing education units shall be required for continued membership in FABI. The number and scope of the continuing education credits will be set by the FABI Education Committee.
Professional inspectors (MPIs and RPIs), associates inspectors and aspiring associate inspectors are required to attend at least one FABI conference and earn 20 hours of continuing education each renewal year.
