Membership provides the opportunity to join this community of health sector thought leaders as they grow and shape Australia's health system and gives access to a wide range of services and resources designed to help meet the challenges of this rapidly evolving sector.

Full Membership

Full Members are 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 6 bands of full members based on the gross operating expenditure of the organisation.
