How long will my membership last if I pay the annual dues?
AHIA Member dues should be paid each year in the month of January. Your dues cover your membership for the current calendar year. As such, this allows AHIA to locate instructors for various training scheduled for that year and use those funds to pay various instructor fees that we incur so that our members continue to have free training throughout the year.
If you paid your dues as part of the fee to attend the annual conference, your membership will end December 31 of that year. If you would like to attend free training throughout the year, we encourage you to pay your dues each year in January.
