Member Get-a-Member


Are You Ready to Become an AIHA Recruitment Hero?


Not all hero's wear a cape. However, as an AIHA member, you have 
firsthand experience when it comes to the the value of membership. 

Your Mission

Between now and December 31, share your personal and professional experiences as an AIHA member with member prospects to help increase the membership of AIHA. 

In return, you will:
  • Expand and deepen your network of IH/OH professionals.
  • Raise the awareness and visibility of the profession.
  • Help other IH/OH professionals reach the pinnacle of their career.
  • Attract students into the IH/OH profession.
  • Strengthen AIHA in representing the needs of IH/OH professionals via policy makers and the public at large.
  • Receive recognition and get rewarded for your efforts.

It's Simple!

If you prefer to work on your own, then the Individualoption is tailored made for you. If you prefer to work within a team environment, then you may want to consider the Local Section option. Choose the option that interests you the most and go for it! Either way, everyone's a winner.
Please note... options cannot be combined. Recruitment of past or lapsed AIHA members do not qualify.

AIHA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes but may be partially deductible as a business expense. AIHA estimates that 6% of your dues are not deductible because of AIHA's lobbying activities on behalf of its members. AIHF and AGF are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Contributions to either may be tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor.​​
