Affiliate membership

$315 per year

AHRI Affiliate membership is a non-professional membership grade.

It is suitable for people with a range of people management responsibilities, where HR is not their primary function. Affiliate membership is a great option for line managers, team leaders, small business owners – or anyone that has people management responsibilities as part of their work.

Affiliate membership is also an appropriate membership option for people who do not meet the requirements for Student or Graduate membership, or who do not yet meet the requirements of the professional membership grades of MAHRI or FAHRI.

Affiliate members stay in touch with changing HR legal requirements and industry developments and they have access to helpful AHRI resources, templates and tools to support their HR activities.

This membership provides the confidence that you can access the right information and support in all matters relating to HR, such as employing a new staff member, creating an employment contract, or investigating a case of workplace misconduct.

Benefits of affiliate membership

No pre-requisites for membership

You do not need to know anything about HR, or have a background in the profession.

Access to member services and tools

Sometimes you just need HR information or support, without the extras.

As an affiliate member, you may not have your own HR department or resource at hand but AHRI can provide the HR information you're looking for. AHRI:ASSIST will come to hand, providing full access to a comprehensive and always up-to-date directory of info sheets, templates, guidelines and checklists on all phases of the employment lifecycle, as well as unlimited access to the Ask AHRI:ASSIST email service. Members stay up to date on the latest news and editorial via AHRI's news site HRM online.

No ongoing commitments

Affiliate members are not required to undertake continuing professional development.

Other types of membership

Does our affiliate-level membership type not suit your experience? We also have AHRI memberships designed for professionals, companies and students.


Professional members receive free professional indemnity insurance as part of their membership.
