Membership Center

Welcome to AHIMA's online membership application. We are excited that you have decided to join AHIMA! AHIMA members share a common interest in the AHIMA purpose and are willing to abide by the Code of Ethics, and we are committed to your success and provide membership benefits and resources in order to enhance your career. Please visit here for a complete list of member types, benefits, and eligibility requirements. Please note that the prices below are only for membership dues and do not include your CE maintenance fee(s) if applicable.

Effective January 1, 2021, the recertification process will no longer include a three-month grace period following the end date of your recertification cycle. Your electronic certificate (located in your CEU center) has been updated to reflect this change. If you need a recertification extension at the end of your 24-month renewal period, it will be available in your CEU center for a $50 fee. To avoid this fee, submit CEUs and payment before the final day of your credential cycle.
