Health Coalition Aotearoa envisions greater health and equity for all New Zealanders through reduced consumption of harmful products, join us to make this a reality

Apply for organisational membership

Joining Health Coalition Aotearoa makes you part of the growing community of public health professionals, community leaders and NGOs in Aotearoa reducing harm from preventable disease. By joining as a member, you can add your voice to calls for health equity and evidence-based action on tobacco, alcohol and unhealthy food, as well as stronger public health infrastructure

Members receive HCA emails and reports, can attend member-only events, contribute to HCA submissions and campaigns and attend and vote at our AGM. Organisational members can display their logo and url on our website alongside other NGOs standing up for public health.

We have a progressive structure for membership fees, based on organisational full-time-equivalent (FTE) staff (including paid contractors and part-time staff). Note that this page is only used to apply for paid organisational memberships for those with two FTE or more. If your organisation has less than two FTE and you wish to apply for free membership you must use the free organisational membership page instead.

Organisational FTE Annual membership fee
< 2 Free membership
2-5 $300
6-20 $1000
> 20 $3000

If you also want to join as an individual member, please see our fee structure and individual membership forms here

As we have kept membership fees as accessible and low as possible, we appreciate members contributing a voluntary donation upon joining or renewing their membership, to protect our independent voice for public health, particularly those with improving public health and health equity as part of their organisational mandate.

Organisational members who are contributing more than $3,000 of donations in-kind to HCA (e.g. office space, design or website services or significant engagement on HCA’s behalf with impacted communities) may consider offsetting all or part of their membership fees by negotiation.

Membership fees are due in April each year and run to the 31st of March. To keep things simple, partial year memberships are not pro-rata. Similarly, we prefer members applying and paying online on the form below wherever possible to reduce administration and accounting.

If you are unable to pay online and require an invoice for direct bank transfer, please complete the free membership application form and email for generation of an invoice, noting your organisational FTE and any donation amount. Your membership application will not be complete until payment is received.

Membership applications are subject to our terms and conditions and require a declaration of any conflicts of interest on the forms below. Our full conflicts of interest policy for members is online here.
