AHA Chapter Toolkit
Keep Your AHE Membership
Working for You!
There are two important ways to
keep your AHE membership working
for you: Update your contact information and renew prior to its expiration.
Keeping your contact information
up-to-date is important because
we are able to ensure your member benefits reach you all year
long. Many members provide their
home contact information as well.
If you need to update your information or wish to provide your
home address, please email Megan
Burnette, membership coordinator, at
We encourage you to renew prior
to your membership expiring. Just like
you, AHE has numbers and metrics
we strive for as a professional association. Maintaining your membership
keeps our retention rate up, and in
the eyes of AHA this is reflective of the
value AHE offers. We often hear from
members that a key reason for not
renewing their membership prior to
expiration is forgetting to process the
paperwork. If you are not planning to
renew, we also value your feedback as
to why you made that decision.
The Sustainability Roadmap-
hospitals how to implement real-world
sustainability projects, enhance existing
efforts, and share their environmental successes with other facilities.
The newly launched website features
search functions, how-to guides, and
other resources. It also provides users the
opportunity to share resources and tools.
Users can also contribute suggestions,
sample documents, and case studies to
add to the library of practical information
on the site.
