AHRI Membership payment options

Online payment by credit card

Our preferred payment method for AHRI membership and renewal fees is online through our secure payment system using a credit card. 

A receipt will be emailed to your nominated email address shortly after payment is received. Receipts can only be issued to the member, and can not be provided to a third party.


All membership fees include 10% GST.

Overseas members

GST is not applicable for members residing outside of Australia, however overseas members will be charged a $32 postage fee in addition to their membership fee. This additional fee includes the international postage charges to send HRM magazine by mail. If you do not wish to receive a printed copy of the magazine, please let us know via [email protected] and we will remove this additional fee from your membership charges. You will still be able access a digital copy of the HRM magazine through your AHRI member profile

Upgrading fee

A non-refundable upgrade assessment fee of $60.50 is payable by existing members who apply to upgrade to a new membership level (e.g. affiliate to professional member). Student members are not required to pay an upgrade assessment fee, but will be required to pay the applicable annual fee for the new membership level in advance.


Can I pay my membership fees in instalments? Are there payment plans?

Eligible members can set up automatic monthly direct debit via select credit cards (Visa and MasterCard). For more information on this payment method, please call us on (03) 9918 9230 or email [email protected]

Can I renew my membership as part of my conference registration?

AHRI offers a "New Member Today" option for conference attendees to apply for a new membership in conjunction with conference registration. This offer is for new memberships only and cannot be used to renew an existing membership or to reactivate a lapsed membership.

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).

What happens if I do not renew my AHRI membership?

You will no longer have cover under the policy if you let your AHRI membership lapse. AHRI ProCover only provides protection to financial professional members of AHRI. If you fail to renew your membership on time, the cover ceases.

Please bear in mind that if you require a professional indemnity policy to continue to cover past HR activities, you need to keep renewing your membership to ensure the cover remains in place. AHRI professional membership is a cost effective way of keeping you covered compared with the cost of a standard professional indemnity insurance policy.
