REACH OUT : THE DUES 2004 PROJECT
We are asking every IAHPC member to consider sponsoring a membership for a colleague, in their own country or overseas, to help the IAHPC reach out to more people. The only criterion is that the recipient MUST have e-mail access so that IAHPC can avoid the costs of printing and international postage.
IAHPC is largely dependent upon membership subscriptions to operate the organisation. We are very proud of what we have achieved in the last year or two - and we desperately want to be able to do more.
Reach Out! Help a colleague and the IAHPC. Sponsor a membership through the Donor’s 2003 Project.
Don’t know who to sponsor, let IAHPC help you? Donations are now tax deductible. If you are interested in helping contact the Executive Director.
If you would like to become a member of our organization, please take a look at our mission statement, the Board of Directors, and some of the projects we are trying to accomplish. Membership dues are based on a sliding scale. An on –line application form is available and secure credit card payments may be made there. Go to our Web site’s Homepage and click on How to Join.

Becoming a member of IAHPC means you are an important part of the organization that helps “share palliative care information world-wide”. Membership dues are extremely important to IAHPC for they cover a small, but important, sustenance that enables us to move forward.
We have no fat in our budget! All Board members and Executive Committee members receive NOTHING, no reduced conference fees , no travel expenses, no reimbursement for supplies or anything else. The Board pays dues as do other members. Join us! To review the names and biographies of Board Members go to www.hospicecare.com/Organisation/Org.htm
