Customer Service Policy

Membership is due to be renewed in January each year and must be paid within 7 days from invoice date to keep the membership current.

If you choose not to continue your membership for the new year, please contact the Membership Administrator at membership@asmp.asn.au by September in the current year to avoid automatic renewal payments going through.

Invoices will be sent out for course payments. Course payments are due within 7 days of invoice date. Please contact us if these arrangements cause financial hardship.

Once you have renewed your membership or paid for your course, you should receive a confirmation email within the next week. If you don’t receive a confirmation email, please let us know.

Refund Policy

Last updated: 24 January 2018

A member will be refunded their year’s subscription on a pro-rata basis upon receipt of a letter or email that they wish to terminate their membership of the organisation.

You can request a refund if payments of membership or course fees are accidentally duplicated or if you choose not to continue your membership but have not arranged for the automatic payment option to be discontinued before the new year.

If you would like to terminate your membership or request a refund of your membership or course fees, please contact Sandra Briggs at membership@asmp.asn.au.

Complaints

We take customer satisfaction very seriously. If you have a complaint in relation to our handling of your Personal Information, we will endeavour to handle it promptly and fairly. For your information, an overview of our complaints handling procedure is as follows:

Any complaints are forwarded to our complaints officer for review. We aim to review all complaints within 7 days of receiving them (although this cannot be guaranteed). If necessary, the complaints officer may then refer the complaint to another section within our organisation for consideration.

If further information is required, we may contact you to request that information. If we accept fault in relation to the complaint then we will propose a resolution (which may or may not be the same as any resolution proposed by you).

If we do not accept fault, then we will contact you to advise you of this. We aim to complete this entire process within 21 days, provided that we are provided complete information in the first place (although this cannot be guaranteed). However, if you do not provide complete information then this is likely to delay the handling of your complaint.

All complaints should be provided in writing by email, using the contact details at the end of this privacy policy. Describe the nature of your complaint including any relevant dates, people involved, any consequences that have occurred, and what you believe should be done to rectify the issue. We will endeavour to respond within 21 days, although we cannot guarantee this.
