Outlined below is important information to be read and considered before applying for membership.
Each membership comes with different voting rights, benefits and fees.
The options are:
Organisation Membership - Tier 1 - For large governmental and corporate entities - Carries twelve votes - 1-12 active representatives
Organisation Membership - Tier 2 - For mid-sized corporate entities - Carries six votes - 1-6 active representatives
Organisation Membership - Tier 3 - For small businesses or individual consultancy businesses - Carries three votes - 1-3 active representatives
Individual Membership - For individuals with a personal interest in the community - Carries one vote - 1 representative
* Organisational membership has 3 tiers (Tier 1, 2 and 3): If you are joining to represent your organisation or its interests in the community, then you must join HL7 AUSTRALIA® as an organisational member. The entry level (Tier 3) organisational membership is priced to allow small organisations to participate in the community (see pricing below). The approval process will consider if the tier of membership applied for is appropriate for the organisation's size and participation in the community.
* Individual membership: Individual members are not to represent an organisation but have a personal interest and passion for the community. When registering for individual membership please use your personal email address, not a corporate address.
During the initial signup phase, all memberships terms will commence on 1-Mar-2019. To allow members to have more control and to better budget for renewal payments, when first joining the new HL7 AUSTRALIA®, you can set your renewal date by selecting your membership length, as follows: Months Fixed Start Date End Date Renew Date 12 1-Mar-19 29-Feb-20 1-Mar-2020 15 1-Mar-19 31-May-20 1-Jun-2020 18 1-Mar-19 31-Aug-20 1-Sep-2020 21 1-Mar-19 30-Nov-20 1-Nov-2020
* For Tier 1 members only: - Options 15, 18 and 21 months are not available, ie a maximum of 12 month membership applies. - An initial 6 month term is available on request, to allow for budgeting sponsorship.
We wish to draw your attention to the obligation that HL7 AUSTRALIA® now carries to make primary contact details of all members available to every member. This is to allow any member to gain enough support to call a General Meeting. Therefore by becoming a member, you agree to your contact details being shared in line with federal legislation.
Additionally HL7 AUSTRALIA® is required under the constitution to charge all new members a one-off fee of $10 that limits your liability as a member to $10. Once paid, this fee will not be charged on renewal of a membership. For accounting purposes please note this payment is GST exempt.
A policy decision of HL7 AUSTRALIA® is to charge all members that are not renewing their membership a $10 administration fee (inc GST). This will be taken from the initial $10 deposit to simplify administration, rather than refunding that $10 deposit on lapse or termination of membership.
The HL7 AUSTRALIA® Board has taken the decision to price the individual membership and entry level organisational membership based on 53% rounded increase to old fees, while creating a new free structure for Teir 1 and 2 membership levels. The pricing becomes...
New Organisation Membership - 12 month term Tier 1 cost is $10.989 + $10 + $22,000 Sponsorship = $32.999 Tier 2 cost is $5,494.50 + $10 = $5,505 Tier 3 cost is $583 + $10 = $593
New Individual Membership - 12 month term Individual cost is $154 + $10 = $164 N.B. Lifetime Individual membership of HL7 AUSTRALIA® is through invitation of HL7 AUSTRALIA® Board. Lifetime members will also be required to pay the $10 once-off fee, to meet legal requirement. Old lifetime members can apply for reinstatement via email to email@example.com.
In the meantime, we have established this form, which allows you to choose the membership type and submit your details.
Upon submission, your application will be reviewed by HL7 AUSTRALIA® to ensure that all pertinent details have been provided, after which an invoice will be sent with payment options.
