Changes to ACAH membership categories and voting rights

After discussion at the inaugural ACAH annual meeting in March 2018, it was determined that the Academy should offer more inclusive and affordable membership to all health professionals working with newborns, children and young people.

This decision was based on the belief that in order to effectively advocate for the needs  of newborns, children and adolescents the Academy should be representative of all those working in the field.

A working party was formed, and changes were recommended and approved at the 2018 AGM in October 2018.

The Board resolved to abolish the Associate Membership category and extend full voting rights to all members who pay a membership fee.

All new membership applications are to be approved by a membership committee prior to gaining membership.

ACAH is a not for profit organisation dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of every newborn, child and young person in order that they may reach their maximum potential.

All those working in healthcare with newborns, children and young people are encouraged to become members of ACAH and become a part of a collegiate and professionally supportive body committed to progressing the health and well-being of this diverse group.
