We welcome you to become a member of the AAN. There are two types of Membership, these being Full Membership or Associate Membership.

Full membership of the AAN enables members to participate fully in the functions and activities of the AAN. Full Members have the right to vote in general meetings, to be nominated for Committee appointments and have access to the ‘Members Only’ section of the AAN website. There are three subcategories of full membership; a. Medical doctors, b. Other health professionals and c. Patients, family members or carers.

Full Members cannot be an employed by the pharmaceutical industry.

Each application will be reviewed by the Membership Committee before approval. The Committee may exercise judgement as to which category of membership is most appropriate. Applicants who satisfy the membership criteria shall be notified via email. Full Members are required to renew subscriptions annually.

As the AAN is a company limited by guarantee Full Members are guarantors of AAN Pty Ltd. if the company is dissolved. Full Members are liable to contribute $10 towards the property of the company to pay off debts, liabilities, and the costs of winding up.

An Associate Member is kept informed of and participates in AAN educational and support activities but does not hold voting rights and cannot be nominated as a committee member. Associate Members shall remain members for five years, whereupon renewal will be required if a longer term of Membership is desired.

E-mail correspondence is the primary means by which the AAN communicates with the AAN membership. While certain documents may be also distributed in hard copy, the AAN does not undertake distribution of all information by post to those who do not provide an e-mail address.
