Ways to Utilize Your Membership

Editor's note: This is the last SynergistNOW post for 2022. The Synergist team wishes you a healthy and joyous holiday season.

If you haven’t already renewed your membership, then now is the best time to secure another year of world-class publications, top-notch webinars and courses, opportunities for leadership growth in over sixty volunteer and working groups, and so much more. AIHA also has exciting new member benefits and opportunities rolling out in the coming year.

Start using your member benefits by completing your member profile. The more information you provide, the better we can customize your membership experience.

Next, you can set up an account on Catalyst, our members-only online community. Check out the latest discussions, open forum posts, events, and announcements, or start your own topic thread. AIHA members are increasingly turning to Catalyst to tap into the knowledge of the OEHS community. "There is some great information being presented on Catalyst,” said Bob Nocco, an AIHA member since 1984 and a regular Catalyst reader. “A discussion board such as this is so valuable in helping others with information and making decisions."

Eager to develop your leadership and professional skills? Getting involved in a volunteer or working group is a perfect way for you to contribute your unique talents, skills, and knowledge. Our volunteers have developed new products, services, and activities for educational purposes and drafted guidelines and standards for best practices. There are over sixty volunteer and working groups to choose from and no additional fees to participate. Visit our website for information about how to get involved.

Perhaps you’re looking for some career guidance and need to gain real-world insight through the experience of a mentor. Or maybe you’ve had a long career and want to make a difference and advance the profession. Either way, if you haven’t joined AIHA’s mentoring program, you’re missing out. With over 200 mentors and mentees already participating, AIHA boasts a robust, easy-to-use, mobile-accessible mentoring platform that is a members-only benefit.

Our top-notch publications, The Synergist and the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Hygiene, are second to none in keeping you up to date on the latest news and research in OEHS. Subscriptions to these publications are included in AIHA membership.

Keeping up with your CM credits or credentialing couldn’t be easier with the number of courses and webinars available at AIHA University. Interested in networking and earning CM points? Your membership offers you a discount to attend AIHce EXP in Phoenix, Arizona.

In 2023, AIHA is introducing a new, members-only benefit, the AIHA Perks Marketplace. All AIHA members will have access to a variety of discounts and savings on services and supplies for your home or office.

In addition, using a new platform called BadgeCert, you’ll be able to digitally display your membership with AIHA and your credentials on platforms such as LinkedIn. More information will be forthcoming in the new year.

AIHA is also excited to roll out two new membership classifications, military and organizational group membership. All U.S. military personnel (with military ID) can get a special discounted membership rate at fifty percent off the full member or early career professional classifications. (Full members are individuals who have a business interest in or support IH, OEHS, or an allied profession. Early career professionals are those with 10 years or less of applied work experience.)

Organizational group membership bundles several individual memberships into a low-cost organizational one. With organizational membership, your employer can ensure that you and your colleagues will continue to receive everything that individual membership offers. We offer tiered pricing to meet the size of your business, starting at five individual memberships ($240 each) for just $835 a year—a 30 percent savings. It’s a game changer for employers looking to save big and invest in their employees. The tiers for organizational group membership are:

  • 0–5 members: $835 (30 percent savings)
  • 6–15 members: $2,340 (35 percent savings)
  • 16–35 members: $3,900 (40 percent savings)
  • 36–55 members: $7,360 (45 percent savings)
  • 56 and up: 50 percent savings

If you haven’t renewed your membership for the coming year, it’s not too late! Get your complimentary copy of a brand-new ebook in the Essentials collection, titled The Essentials of OEHS Communication (valued at $19.95), if you renew before 11:59 p.m. ET on Dec. 31.* If you’ve already renewed, thank you for your commitment to AIHA, and we look forward to another great year of working with you.

*We will follow up on your free ebook download upon its release in January 2023. This offer is only valid on renewals received before 12/31/2022.
