Benefits include: Access to the "Dialogue" newsletter, discounts to the AAHA convention and workshops, inclusion into our online Study Group sessions, access our Allbright Research Library. There are no voting or nominations privileges on the Affiliate Member level. Once an affiliate, you can then apply to the next level.
- Associate Member - This level is attained once you have passed a basic skills examination administered by our Accreditation Chair. An Associate Member has voting and nomination privileges, plus all the other privileges of the Affiliate Member. Once you have passed the basic skills examination (part one towards certification) then you may apply for the next level.

A certified member has all the privileges of the Associate member. An AAHA Certified member is considered to be a qualified, professional graphologist.
- Honorary membership is acquired by making a distinguished contribution to the field of handwriting analysis To become an Honorary Member, you must be recommended by the AAHA Board of Directors and receive a three-fourths vote at the annual convention. An Honorary Member may attend all meetings and receive all publications, but have no other privileges.
Membership questions should be directed to our Membership Chair.
This is the annual fee for all levels of AAHA members (both new and renewing): Affiliate / Associate / Certified
New Member Processing Fee
There is a one-time only new-member processing fee of $15.00. As long as you have a continuous membership, this fee will only apply once.
YOUR EXPERIENCE IS OUR GUARANTEE
Like any educational organization, you only get out of your membership what you put into it. We make available to you the opportunities to reach out to those that live near you, or to join online with us. Networking, experiencing various handwriting criteria, and sharing your own experiences are the best way to learn and improve your skills as a graphologist. Graphology is a very large and complex part of the human behavioral system, and its study is ongoing. Please come and learn, and grow, with us!
