What will happen next?

I’m already a member of ASHM. What should I do?
If you are already a member of ASHM, we would encourage you to remain so. Ordinary Membership is the backbone of the Society and we strongly value the role you play in our governance. However, should you wish, you can transfer to Affiliate Status by resigning your Ordinary Membership at the end of the financial year and then reapplying as an Affiliate. Please note: we do not offer reimbursement for membership resignation made before the end of the financial year.
What if I am no longer a member of SHSQ?
Affiliate status is conditional on you maintaining your membership or employment with SHSQ and of SHSQ remaining an Organisational Sustaining Member of ASHM. If either of these cease then you will no longer be able to access the Affiliate Program. We would, however, welcome you to apply for Ordinary Membership of ASHM.
Do I need to renew at the end of each financial year?
As an Affiliate, there is no need to re-register at the end of each financial year. However we will email you and invite you to review and update your contact details and areas of interest.
How do I resign as an Affiliate?
If you no longer wish to participate in ASHM’s Affiliate Program, please contact our Membership Services Team at to notify them of your decision and we will remove you from our mailing lists.
