- Winding up or discontinuation of operations, depending on whether the member is an individual or legal entity
- Resignation, subject to the payment of all outstanding commitments and obligations due to the association
- Removal by the Executive Board for failure to pay dues or for some other serious reason, prior to which the member is invited to appear before the Board to discuss the facts cited for his or her possible removal.
Every member has the right to request immediate cancellation of membership on serious grounds.
