An international e-Member is someone who would otherwise qualify as a full member and who resides outside the United States and Canada. If this is you, then you are eligible for international membership. This virtual membership has access to Synergist magazine, members-only content, an online community, and resources. An international member may vote on matters relating to the Association and serve on committees.

AIHA members are located worldwide, and a virtual membership is the perfect way to stay connected with your peers and be updated on global topics, technology, and trends within your industry.

For our international members, we offer a virtual community and network that allows you to quickly find solutions to the problems you face around the clock. Be part of the global IH/OEHS professionals community and gain valuable global perspectives on your work.

There are no additional administrative fees for membership or additional costs to actively participate in the 48+ technical and professional development volunteer groups.

Recognition of the AIHA Code of Conduct

This document outlines the Code of Conduct for all members and volunteers of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA). It summarizes the expected behavior of members and volunteers representing AIHA in any forum, mailing list, public meetings, or private correspondence. . We ask that our members and volunteers read and submit the acknowledgment through the online form.


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 its dues are not deductible due to AIHA's lobbying activities on behalf of its members. American Industrial Hygiene Foundation and American Industrial Hygiene Guideline Foundation are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Contributions to either may be tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor.

Please note that membership dues are non-refundable.
