Did you know that students can also join ACHE, and at a discounted rate? Membership to ACHE means that you are automatically registered in your local chapter (based upon address on file). The good part – membership moves with you, so if you graduate and take a job in California, your chapter membership will transfer to your new local chapter!
Students can apply for scholarships, network with executives and begin to demonstrate commitment to lifelong learning. For more benefits of student membership please click here.
