A special resolution to change the following AHA membership category definitions was passed at the 2020 AHA AGM:
1. A Concession member will henceforth be defined as a person who is in a fixed term position (1 year’s duration or under) OR retired. The membership fee for this category will be fixed at $100 per year or $200 for two year’s membership
2. A Low income member will henceforth be defined as unemployed, sessionally or casually employed, employed under 0.4FTE, or a holder of a health care card or similar. The membership for this category will be fixed at $85 per year or $170 for two year’s membership.
It is hoped these changes will better reflect the realities of employment in the current market, and make access to membership more affordable. Updated membership categories can be viewed here.
