The Tennessee Hospital Association (THA) is closely associated with a number of professional healthcare organizations that primarily are organized to benefit the professional interests of their personal members.
These organizations are recognized by the association for their contributions in the areas of professional education, research and standards for their members and their contribution to the achievement of THA's goals and objectives.
Two types of personal member organizations are recognized by THA for membership purposes: allied and affiliate professional organizations.
Services available to all allied and affiliate organizations include:
Small meeting rooms are available for use by allied and affiliate organizations. A nominal fee is charged for workshops. There is no charge for business meetings or board meetings. To assure availability, early reservations are recommended and arrangements must be made directly with the education department.
Joint Annual Meeting
Affiliate and allied organizations jointly may meet with the association during its annual meeting with approval from the THA board of directors. Organizations meeting in conjunction with the annual meeting are encouraged to help sell exhibit space at the Technical and Educational Exposition.
THA services available only to affiliate organizations include:
Members of affiliate organizations automatically become personal members of the association. Members of the allied organizations may become personal members by paying personal membership dues.
Personal members are eligible to be appointed to THA councils and committees.
Upon two weeks notice, THA annually will provide affiliate organizations with two complimentary membership lists or sets of mailing labels. Other copies will be provided at a minimal cost.
THA will collect dues and maintain financial accounts for affiliate organizations' funds. The association also will furnish monthly financial statements, disperse funds and make payments upon written authorization of the affiliate group president or designee.
Affiliate organizations may request other services as needed. A fee will be charged to cover the cost of providing these services.
