Don't take our word for it, listen to what our current members have to say about AHVAP


Here are a few quotes that we recently have received from current members about the value of their AHVAP membership:

"I cannot imagine now being a part of AHVAP. The changes made in the last year are truly a game-changer, and where else can you spend $120 and get thousands of dollars in return on your investment!

"AHVAP is MY professional association and they are always a phone call or email away. I emailed for help urgently one day and the Executive Director called me personally within 30 minutes and helped me which tells me everything about this organization. It is a must-have for me in my career."

"Where else can you receive so many benefits for this value! AHVAP has been a blessing for me and my team as we build our new value analysis program. I really love the regional meetings and the member resource center. Both have been absolutely invaluable to me.

"Being a member of AHVAP means that I am not alone in this fight. This role is difficult, but knowing that I am a member in a group of my peers with varying levels of expertise is really helpful to me. I have found the members and staff of AHVAP to be nothing less than world class in every aspect. This is the best membership that I have and I cannot imagine not being a member.

"The level of customer service that you experience from AHVAP is unparalleled. It's basically Ritz Carlton level, and that says it all. I love that the AHVAP family cares so much about each of its members. I will be a member for life!

"I belong to several professional health care organizations as a health care consultant and respiratory therapist.  The changes that have been made over the past few months with the AHVAP website and member benefits are absolutely phenomenal.  Anyone considering whether to join AHVAP need only to explore the website to see the numerous benefits provided to members."
