What is affiliate membership?
Sometimes you just need HR information or support, without the extras.
As an affiliate member of AHRI, you will have the support and HR resources you need to successfully manage people and HR processes in your organisation.
Who can join?
You do not need to know anything about HR or have a background in the HR profession to apply for affiliate membership. Affiliate members are also not required to undertake continuing professional development.
Affiliate membership is suitable if you
- Have management responsibilities but HR is not your primary function, e.g. line managers, team leaders, small business owners; OR
- Work in HR, but do not yet meet professional membership requirements (MAHRI or FAHRI), and are not eligible for student or graduate (GAHRI) membership.
Step 1: Application and payment
You can apply online and pay by credit card, and a receipt will be automatically emailed to you. Either:
- Apply now and pay annually (Australian residents only), or
- Apply now and set up automatic monthly direct debit (Australian residents only)
Step 2: Your member profile
Your new AHRI membership profile will be created with your personal and employment/study details. Please note your username and password so you can access members-only webpages once your application is completed.
Step 3: Confirmation
Your application will be processed immediately and you will receive a confirmation email and welcome pack.
*If you are living outside of Australia and submitted a PDF application form, please allow up to 7 days for your application to be reviewed. A confirmation email will be sent to you when your membership has been reviewed and approved. You will be posted a new member pack in the mail within 7 days of your membership being confirmed.
