Q. Can I share my login details with a friend or colleague?

Your login details are only for your own personal use and should never be shared. Your personal information (including your home address, email address and date of birth) is visible to anyone using your login details, as is your CPD record. Please log out of your AHRI profile before you register another person for an event or course.

Q. 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).
