Becoming a Member:

Becoming a member of Ohio AHEAD is a 2 step process:

  1. Each member submits an Ohio AHEAD Membership Form
    • This form provides Ohio AHEAD with your contact information, demographics, and professional interests. Completing the form helps us maintain an accurate membership roster.
  2. The person responsible for payment submits membership dues.
    • Institutional Memberships: the person responsible for payment completes the Institutional Membership Payment Form, indicating which professionals are covered under said institutional membership.
      • Note: each professional still needs to submit a membership form, as described in step 1.
    • All other memberships: submit payment via check or credit card/PayPal (instructions provided on the membership form).
    • For payment questions or to request an invoice/receipt, contact Ohio AHEAD Treasurer, Adam Crawford, at
