FAQ about AHRI membership

What are the benefits of maintaining continuous membership – does AHRI have a loyalty program?

Yes, AHRI rewards members who have maintained membership with us continuously, with milestones at 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40 years. Each milestone is recognised in a different way, but can include additional discounts for event registrations, presentation of certificates or plaques or public recognition in AHRI's HRM magazine.

How do I upgrade my membership?

You can upgrade your membership at any time by completing the appropriate online upgrade form, which you can accessed in your member profile. If your membership is linked to an organisation membership, please email for details. Ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements before submitting your documents for consideration of an upgrade. A one-off, non-refundable upgrade assessment fee of $60.50 is payable.

Can I suspend my membership?

Yes. Your membership can be suspended on a yearly basis for up to two years. You will receive a renewal notice at the end of your first year suspension period, but you may contact us at any time in the interim to reactivate your membership. Suspending your membership is a suitable option if you are travelling, on extended leave or experiencing financial difficulty; you can easily reactivate your membership and still retain continuous membership status (and therefore be eligible to receive benefits under AHRI's member loyalty program).

Can I keep my membership while I'm on parental leave?

Yes. We offer a special rate for members on parental leave of $110 per year, for a maximum of two years. We will issue you with a renewal notice at the end of your first year. If you wish to continue your parental leave rate for the second year, please contact us after the renewal notice is issued.
