Our preferred payment method for AHRI membership and renewal fees is online through our secure payment system using a credit card. AHRI accepts Visa, Mastercard, Diners or American Express. You can also pay by phone (03 9918 9230) by providing your credit card details, by cheque made payable to AHRI or by EFT payment.
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.
Post-nominal letters (also known as designatory letters) are a set of letters that are included after your name to indicate your qualifications, honours or accreditation.
AHRI professional members are able to include their AHRI membership level as a post-nominal. This is a short-hand way of indicating to others that you have been assessed by AHRI and have achieved a particular membership level based on this assessment.
AHRI encourages all professional members who are entitled to use post-nominals to do so, thus proudly demonstrating your professional standing and credibility, and improve your career prospects. Post-nominal letters are typically included on business cards, resumes and CVs and are increasingly being included in email signatures.
You may use more than one post-nominal after your name. Here are two examples:
1) Jane Smith PhD, FAHRI (Jane has a PhD and is a Fellow of AHRI).
2) John Smith BBus (HRMgt)Hons, MAHRI (John has a Bachelor of Business in HR Management with honours, and is a professional member of AHRI).

For other activities completed externally, you can log in to your CPD recording tool to plan and record your CPD activities.
AHRI recommends that you update your CPD record on a monthly basis, but you may choose to update your record more regularly.
