ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP POLICY

Policy Statement

Alberta Municipal Health and Safety Association (“AMHSA”) provides an opportunity for organizations that do not pay the AMHSA levy to join AMHSA as Associate Members.

Purpose

Associate Membership provides access to all AMHSA services, programs, and resources for one (1) calendar year from the date of joining.

General Guidelines

Training

The member fees for training are outlined in the Course Fee Structure Policy and apply to Associate Members. When presenting training programs to groups that contain exclusively one group of Associate Members, AMHSA is prepared to modify the presentation slightly (e.g., relevant examples, forms, etc.) to make the presentation more appropriate for the group. AMHSA would only consider developing new course material at the request of an Associate Member if the training would also be useful to AMHSA’s regular membership. This will be at the discretion of the Executive Director.
