Membership Programs

Attention AHS International members! Sponsor new members and win exciting prizes! Earn membership in the prestigious President's Club and Gold Circle Club!

AHS membership is fueled by active chapter and individual interest in membership recruitment. The Society recognizes members and chapters dedicated to this growth through its various membership programs. These contests run from January 1 to December 31 and consist of:
  • President's Club Sponsor Program: Each AHS member who sponsors ten or more members is accepted into the President's Club, receives recognition in Vertiflite and on the AHS web site, an AHS coffee mug, and a President's Club Certificate of Appreciation.
  • Executive Member of the President's Club Sponsor Program: Each AHS member who sponsors 25 or more members becomes an Executive Member of the President's Club and receives recognition in Vertiflite, an AHS Executive Pen, and a President's Club Executive Member Certificate of Appreciation.
As an additional incentive for AHS members to sponsor new members, the Society runs four membership contests each year:
  • Ed Smith, Individual Sponsor Winner, Forum 68Individual Member Sponsor Contest: The AHS member who sponsors the greatest number of new members during the contest year wins a trip to the AHS Annual Forum, including airfare (up to $1,500 USD), hotel accommodations, registration, and tickets to all social functions (including for a spouse or partner). The winner also receives a plaque, presented at the AHS Annual Awards Banquet.
  • Chapter Member Increase Contest: First place is awarded to the AHS chapter with the greatest net growth at the end of the contest period (from April 1 to March 31). The winning chapter receives a plaque or certificate presented at the AHS Annual Awards Banquet.
  • Chapter Percent Increase Contest: First place is awarded to the AHS chapter with the greatest percent increase at the end of the contest period (from April 1 to March 31). The winning chapter receives a plaque or certificate presented at the AHS Annual Awards Banquet.
  • Every-Member-Get-A-Member Contest: First place is presented to the AHS chapter whose members sponsor the most new members during the contest period (from April 1 to March 31). The chapter will receive one credit for each chapter member who sponsors a new member. The winning chapter receives a plaque or certificate presented at the AHS Annual Awards Banquet.

In addition, AHS International members are also recognized for faithful service after 25 years of consecutive membership in the Society by being inducted into the Gold Circle Club.
