Full Membership

Full Members are those organisations most closely associated with the activities of the association. 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.

Associate and Personal Membership

Associate Members receive AHHA publications, discounted access to events and training for all their staff but are less involved with the day to day work and advocacy of the association.

Personal Members receive AHHA publications and discounted access to events and training. Personal membership of AHHA is open to all individuals who are interested in the work of the AHHA and the future of the Australian health system.
