Are memberships transferable?


Memberships paid by individuals follow them if they change their place of employment. Please contact us if a change of employment occurs so that we can update your contact information.

Memberships paid by an organization are transferable to another staff member only if the original staff member leaves the organization or leaves their role at the current organization.


Memberships paid by an organization are not intended to be transferable between staff at an organization for ongoing purposes throughout the year. If more than one staff member at an organization is interested in joining HAV, each of them requires their own membership.
