I used to be an AIHA member, but dropped my membership—can I rejoin at a prorated rate?
No. Prorated dues are for brand new members only. Memberships not reinstated within the course of one year will require resubmission of a new application form and your new join date will be the date your resubmission application is accepted.
I’m an AIHA member who will be retiring soon—does AIHA offer retirees a special rate?

Do I qualify for the student rate even if I am only a part-time student?

What happens to my membership if I leave my organization?
If you are an individual member, your membership stays with you. If you are an organizational member, the membership remains with the organization.
Are my dues tax deductible?
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.
Can I join an AIHA Local Section as well as National?
AIHA national does collect dues for some, but not all AIHA Local Sections. Each section has its own dues structure, member benefits, and features.
Can I join an AIHA Student Local Section through National?
No. Each AIHA Student Local Section has its own dues structure and member benefits and features.
Can I be a member of more than one AIHA Local Section?
