AV Professional Memberships - Overview
Our AV Professional Memberships allow businesses and organisations to become AV members, to access AV member benefits for themselves and their team, and to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to inclusion and celebration of our autistic community in the workplace and in the wider world.
As of January 2023, in response to member and community feedback, AV offers three professional membership types, designed to meet the needs of various types of businesses and organisations within our community.
Within our Professional Membership category, we offer:
Autism Supporter Membership for small and medium businesses operating outside the autism and allied health space.
Corporate Membership for large organisations operating outside the autism and allied health space.
Service Provider Membership for businesses of any size providing services within the autism and allied health space.
This includes health and service professionals (including allied and mental health practitioners), NDIS providers and plan managers, schools, not-for-profit organisations, etc.
Payment / renewal options include auto-renew (requires PayPal) or one-year (PayPal, credit card, or bank transfer).
If you represent a business or organisation and you would like to present your brand as one which recognises autistic strengths, which promotes and actively supports inclusion and diversity, and which empowers autistic voices, we invite you to browse our Professional Membership offer below to find the membership option that best suits your team.
