An NZSTA letter of good standing declares that an NZSTA member:
- meets all the requirements for membership recognition.
- has agreed to abide by the NZSTA Code of Ethics.
- meets the NZSTA requirements for continuing professional development.
- is not subject to any disciplinary investigation or sanction.
A letter of good standing will be issued only to current Registered Members who have held NZSTA Full membership for a minimum of 12 months.
NZSTA Registered membership applies to practising speech and language therapists who fulfil the NZSTA requirements for continuing professional development and have agreed to abide by the NZSTA Code of Ethics.
Letters will be issued only for the application for membership in an MRA signatory professional association. The letter of good standing will be sent (via email) directly to the relevant professional association and copied to the applicant.
Letters will be valid only for the membership year they are issued.
Applicants who have been NZSTA Full members for less than one year will not be issued with a letter of good standing but may be issued with a letter indicating the dates of their membership period.
Applicants with a period of lapsed membership and whose current membership is less than one year will not be issued with a letter of good standing but may be issued with a letter indicating the dates of previous membership and, if appropriate, a statement that they had not been subject to any disciplinary proceedings in that period of membership. The letter will also indicate that they have recently renewed their NZSTA membership.
Applicants who have in the past been subject to a disciplinary investigation will have their requests considered case-by-case basis.
