It is that time of the year again, for the renewal of your ABP membership for 2021. ABP is pleased to be able to announce a 0% increase of fees to members (new and renewal) who make payment on or before 31 December 2020. Thereafter a 5% increase of fees will be applicable.

Due to the compliance requirements of the “Protection of Personal Information Act”, as set by government, we are required by law to have on file the latest signed membership application forms.

In keeping with regulations for our recognition as a Professional Body, we are not in a position to finalize membership without all the necessary documentation.
