"Since retiring, I have found being a member of my Regional Managment Board particularly rewarding." David Barraclough, Retired Member
Members from all classes can transfer to Retired Class. You are eligible for Retired Class if you are no longer practising planning or making an income from planning. You are not able to provide professional planning advice even as a volunteer once you transfer to Retired Class. Retired members are exempt from the requirement to maintain their CPD. If you decide you wish to work again at some point in the future, then you can revert to your previous membership level by completing the Application to revert to membership.
Retired members pay a reduced subscription yet retain all the benefits of membership.
Retired members must always use (Rtd) next to their post-nominals once they retire. For example, retired Chartered Town Planners would use MRTPI (Rtd).
There is no fee to transfer to Retired Class however members must complete an Application to Transfer to Retired Class. Most members will receive a refund on their subscription if they have already paid for the year in which they retire.
