AHRI offers four types of membership to manufacturers of any product within the scope of one or more of AHRI’s industry sectors, and which has a substantial volume of more than $1,000,000 (U.S. Dollars) in annual sales. Membership includes all divisions or branches of the corporation or firm which manufacture products within the scope of any product within AHRI's industry sectors.
In order to become a full member, a company must both manufacture and sell at least one product* in North America.
An international member manufactures products outside of North America, but must sell a substantial number of units in North America. This type of membership has limited voting capabilities, but can actively participate on applicable AHRI committees.
An affiliate member manufactures any product within the scope of one or more AHRI industry sectors outside North America and does not sell that product in North America.
An associate member manufacture a component (other than a product within the scope of an AHRI industry sector) that is used in the production or operation of products within the scope of one or more industry sectors and sells such product in substantial volume in the open market. This level of membership has limited voting capabilities, but associate members are able to attend industry sector meetings and annual meetings of the association.
