ASHI reimburses for new chapter members

To sign up new Associates at a chapter meeting, please download an updated application and chapter reimbursement coupon from the ASHI Web site and ask the prospect to join your chapter and ASHI at the same time.

By doing so, the new member will qualify for a $30 credit on his or her chapter dues. In turn, ASHI will reimburse the chapter $30.
