Professional Membership


AHRI's membership type for HR and people management professionals of all levels. Professional members are covered by AHRI ProCover insurance, have full access to member resources and discounts and are awarded an AHRI member post-nominal - MAHRI or FAHRI - based on their level of experience and qualifications. Professional membership of AHRI demonstrates commitment to your career and the HR profession.

Graduate (GAHRI)

Graduate membership is a professional-level membership. It has been designed especially for HR university graduates who are starting their career in the HR profession. Graduate members are covered by AHRI ProCover insurance and get full access to member resources to start gaining valuable networks for their future in the profession. To be eligible for graduate membership you need to have graduated from a HR relevant qualification within the last 2 years. Please ensure you have a copy of your transcript or certificate to upload to the qualifications section of the application form.

Organisation membership

Become an AHRI organisation member to demonstrate your organisation's ongoing commitment to the professional development of your employees and engagement with the HR profession.  This membership includes one full individual membership valued up to $441 and will provide discounts to everyone in your company to attend any of AHRI's conferences, events, webinars, training and education programs.  You will also receive further discounts off the price of individual memberships for the rest of your HR team.

Non-professional membership


Affiliate membership is for those with people management responsibilities, but HR is not their primary function. Affiliates may have a range of backgrounds from line managers and team leader to business owners. These members get support and access to HR information to successfully manage their people and HR processes at work. This membership type is also suitable for people who are working in HR but do not yet meet the requirements for a professional membership.


Designed primarily for students studying a bachelor level university qualification, this membership level allows full time and part time students studying HR to access AHRI member resources to support their studies and get a foot in the door with our professional networking opportunities. This membership grade is designed for students who've not yet entered into the workforce and is therefore not suitable for people who have prior HR experience or are currently working in HR.
