Membership Renewal for 2018

Australian Property Institute (API) Membership Renewals for 2018 are now available. API Membership Renewals are payable on 1 January 2018.  To assist Members with their renewal, the API created 2018 API Membership invoices for all Members* who had not raised a membership renewal by 1 January 2018.

Invoices raised prior to 1 January 2018 which were unpaid on that date have been cancelled by the API. The new invoice, emailed on 1 January 2018, will be the only invoice able to be accessed and paid. 

This page details how to make payment of your 2018 API Membership Renewal after 1 January 2018.
