Membership fee structure

CHS Alliance 2018 membership fee structure

In 2017, the Board requested a comprehensive review of the CHS Alliance fee structure approved during the Constitutive General Assembly in Nairobi in 2015.  Many of you are aware that our merger process took longer than expected and led to a delay in applying the CHS Alliance fee structure.  In 2016 the Board agreed to extend the transitory arrangement for fees to former People in Aid and HAP members for the payment of 2017 fees. In September 2017, based on the findings of the review, the Board approved the new CHS Alliance fee structure that will be applicable from 1 January 2018.

This new fee structure is as follows:
