Sustaining membership is a category of membership which allows organisations or individuals who are interested in ASHM work to access all the benefits of membership EXCEPT the capacity to participate in ASHM governance. Sustaining members cannot vote, nominate or stand for election.
Individual Sustaining Membership $220
This non-voting membership category is for individuals residing outside of Australia and New Zealand or who do not wish to influence policy.

Individual employees in the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industry are invited to apply for Individual Sustaining Membership, but companies may be interested in applying for Organisational Sustaining Membership to cover all their relevant staff under an Affiliate program.
Organisational Sustaining Membership
This category is offered to organisations that share our commitment to supporting the health sector.
Organisational membership is tailored to the size, nature and scope of an organisation. This may include the addition of an affiliate program, which extends most of ASHM membership benefits to staff and/or members at no extra individual cost.
If your organisation is interested in becoming a member of ASHM, we want to hear from you. Please contact the ASHM membership team and we'll gladly discuss a package tailored to suit your needs. See a list of our Organisational Sustaining Members.
