ACHCA Group Membership Rate – A Member Benefit that Supports Quality Outcomes!

The ACHCA Group Membership Rate offers a company or facility the opportunity to receive a reduced membership dues rate if they pay for 3 or more individual memberships at one time.

An organization can use any combination of these membership types to be eligible for the group rate. [Example: a current administrator, a newly licensed assistant administrator, and a director of nursing from the same organization]


What is the Group Membership Rate? 10% reduction in the membership fee per individual member.


Definitions and Process

Definition of a Group: A group is one of the following:

1.      A company or corporation that owns multiple facilities for long term nursing care, assisted living care, or rehabilitation services.

2.      An individual facility with a minimum of three (3) qualified members for the group rate.

3.      A Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) in which individuals would like to apply for a group membership.

Individual Group Members: Individual group members are the following:

Three (3) or more individuals working at a facility or within a company/corporation that qualify for one of the following memberships:  Professional, Emerging Professional, or Associate

Who does not qualify for a group membership rate? Individuals working for different companies/corporations. (Example: Three (3) administrators from three different companies.)  Exception: Individuals who are members of GPOs.


1.      Three (3) or more qualified members from the same facility and/or same company/corporation will join using a group membership application form.

2.      The payment must be received at the same time for all members in the group membership. There must be one payment via check or credit card.

3.      One individual must be designated as the contact for renewal of the group rate; this person will receive the annual renewal invoice for coordination and payment.

4.      The membership will be treated as individual memberships for each person in the group; if the company/corporation pays, they will also be treated as the owner of the membership.

5.      Each individual will have their own membership record and their own renewal date. If they do not renew as a group, regular membership rates will apply upon renewal.


There is no application fee for this membership type.
