Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the association's membership structure so that you choose the correct member type below. Note: Only hospital employees qualify for Primary or Additional Professional Active Member. Please read the category descriptions carefully before selecting your member type.
Primary Professional Active Membership is available to those individuals who are actively employed in or by healthcare-related facilities (those that provide patient care), or who have responsibility in healthcare facility operations (e.g., facilities management, plant engineering, evs, design/construction, security, safety, clinical engineering, and telecommunications). Dues in the amount of $100 are assessed to the organization each year on January 1. Additional Professional Active Members from the SAME facility may register for a discounted rate of $50 per person whose organization maintains a Primary Professional Active Membership in TAHFM.
Professional Positional Membership is available to uniformed military and nonuniformed governmental positions (not individuals) maintained by healthcare-related facilities that have responsibility in healthcare facility operations (facilities management, plant engineering, design/construction, security, safety, clinical engineering, telecommunications). Due to the transient nature of the aforementioned positions, Professional Positional Membership provides benefits of membership to whomever assumed the position’s duties within their organization. Dues in the amount of $50 are assessed to the organization each year on January 1.
Primary Associate Membership is available to those individuals or representatives that provide professional, technical and consulting services or sell products or services to Professional Active Members or Professional Positional Members, but whose employers are not healthcare providers (providing patient care). Qualifying members include planners, consultants, architects, interior designers, consulting engineers, manufacturers, vendors, sellers of contracted services, and federal, state, and local healthcare facilities inspectors. Dues in the amount of $200 are assessed to the organization each year on January 1. Primary Associate Members may register two Additional Associate Members from the same organization at no additional charge.
Educator/Student Membership Non-Voting is available to full-time educators or college students teaching or taking course work related to any discipline represented by the Society. Dues in the amount of $25 are assessed to the student each year on January 1.
