It's all in/after a name

Strata Community Australia (Vic) awards individual members with an entitlement to use post nominals following
an assessment of their competency and ethical standing within the profession.
The awarding of post nominals is designed to:

  • Differentiate the credentials of members
  • To assure the public of the high ethical and professional standards maintained by Association members

Members must meet the criteria each year to maintain the awarded post nominal, failure to meet requirements
will result in post nominals being revoked and membership reverting to provisional.

The post nominals follow a person’s name, for example John Citizen CPSM, and can be used on business cards,
the signature block on correspondence and similar material.

The Council have endorsed the use of four post nominals for members of SCA (Vic), these being:
