HTA membership is available as a Subscription, automatically renewing on an Annual basis until cancelled. At the moment, only a single annual $75 Subscription package is available which provides access to all HTA Services. At the time that this PREMIUM Subscription is purchased it is set up to synchronise to a 1st July anniversary, with the initial fee calculated on a pro-rata basis. The purpose of synchronising to the financial year is to simplify members’ keeping of records of their membership expenses, including costs of ongoing professional development, for taxation purposes.
An application is initiated by completing the application form available under this tab. Applicants are required to include in their application proof that they have graduated from an HTA approved training course. Your personal details ( email, name, address ) are automatically used to create a new Stripe account for you and you’ll be requested to add a preferred payment method via a Stripe secure link. If membership is approved, a Membership Number is attached to the application and a Subscription is set up on the Stripe system with a 1st July anniversary date. The pro-rata fee until the anniversary date will then be charged to the payment method you provided and your membership will be fully operational, to be automatically renewed on 1st July unless cancelled by you.
If you’re unfamiliar with Stripe, it is somewhat analogous to PayPal. Like PayPal, it provides a range of financial services with a small fee attached to every transaction. HTA never has access to your banking details.
