Full Membership

Full Members are individuals and organisations most closely associated with the activities of the AHHA. Full membership includes representation on the AHHA Council, the governing body which elects the board and sets the strategic direction for the AHHA and includes the opportunity to be closely involved with the development of submissions to government and other advocacy activities.

Full membership of an organisation also allows all staff to access member benefits such as access to discounted events and training.

There are 3 categories of full organisational members based on the gross operating expenditure (GOE) of the organisation. A multi-organisation membership is also available for up to 5 related organisations that are funded under a single overarching budget.

Academic or research focused individuals or organisations can add membership of the Deeble Institute for Health Policy Research to their full membership by agreeing to collaborate with the Deeble Institute to further our program of health policy research.
