* A break in service (consecutive years) occurs when a member allows his/her membership to lapse and rejoins at a later date but does not reinstate his/her membership back to the original membership lapse date. Any break in service may affect their future chances for Senior and Life Member categories. For example, members applying for Senior and Life Membership must have a minimum of 15 years of consecutive membership. EXAMPLE: Dr. Smith was a member from June 1, 1984, to November 1, 1992, when he resigned his membership. On June 1, 1994, Dr. Smith indicates an interest in rejoining, but is not concerned with his break in service. When he rejoins on June 1, 1994, he will show a break in service from November 1, 1992, to May 31, 1994.

The only way to mend a break in service is to pay dues for the period of time that the DPM was not a member at the time of rejoining. In this case, Dr. Smith was not a member for a period of approximately one and a half years. Dr. Smith may want to mend his membership, as he already has approximately nine consecutive years of membership. By mending, Dr. Smith will amend his record to reflect no break in service and reflect continuous membership starting on June 1, 1984. This will be a total of approximately 10 and one-half years. If he mends his membership, he could be eligible for Senior or Life Membership in another four and a half years.

Non-Practicing Member (NPM)

(NPM)

A DPM who has completed a residency, fellowship, or postgraduate studies and who has not entered practice or podiatric employment may maintain membership within this category for a maximum period of one APMA fiscal year, or until they enter practice, podiatric employment, or entered another residency program, whichever is earlier. The DPM must not have had his/her license revoked for any reason. Annual dues $445 ($213 NJPMS + $232 APMA) + local division dues.

Disabled Member (PDM)

A DPM who is disabled and for whom the payment of full dues would constitute a hardship, may be classified as a disabled member. “Disabled” shall mean total disability that continuously prevents the member from carrying out substantial and material professional duties; such member must be under the regular care of a physician (other than himself) and may not derive any income or profit from any activity as a podiatrist. A member classified as “disabled” shall not be eligible for any other category of membership. Disability membership shall be revoked if the member's disability has terminated and he or she is able to resume activities as a podiatrist. A current member must be in good standing (dues and assessments for the current quarter have been paid). Annual dues $249 ($119 NJPMS + $130 APMA) + local division dues

5.4 Status Member

A DPM who is a current NJPMS member in good standing (dues and assessments for the current quarter have been paid), for whom the payment of dues would constitute a hardship due to a temporary physical disability, illness, or other reasons as investigated and set forth by the NJPMS. This category allows the member to be excused from payment of dues (all or a portion), for the current fiscal year. A non-member cannot join with 5.4 status and an inactive member cannot be reinstated as a 5.4 Status Member. 5.4 status cannot be backdated to previous fiscal years; it can only apply to the current fiscal year.

If you would like to apply for 5.4 membership, please contact Lorraine Fenenic at lfenenic@njpms.com or call 732-967-9003.
