Any organisation is eligible to join HIMAA as an organisational member if:
- Its objectives are compatible with those of the association, and
- It is involved in or affiliated with the health information management field or a related professional field.
HIMAA offers a discounted rate (80% of normal member subscription) where a company nominates and pays for three or more employees to be members of HIMAA. The employer also receives unlimited, free advertisements on HIMAA's Workweb recruitment site.
There are TWO categories of membership that would apply to employees, namely Full Member (qualified HIM) or Affiliate Member (not a qualified HIM). By joining HIMAA as an organisational member your employees receive all the rights, privileges and member benefits of "normal" members. The annual membership subscription rates that would apply are as follows:-
Australia Rate (incl. GST)
Full Member AUD$238.00 (normal rate $297.00)
Affiliate Member AUD$175.00 (normal rate $218.00)
Overseas Rate (excl. GST, incl. Overseas Postage)
Full Member AUD$390.00
Affiliate Member AUD$325.00
Organisational membership provides access to a rich source of information for nominated employees within your organization, plus other benefits.
The multiple year, advance purchase of membership is not available to Organisational Members.
However, nominated employees' continuity of membership is preserved in the event that they subsequently join HIMAA as an individual member.
