Announcement: Update on Membership Subscription Model

Dear APHN Members,

The 20th Council of the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network has passed a resolution to update our membership subscription model. This is to facilitate a more efficient model, making membership renewals easier for all members.  

Our current model, based on an anniversary renewal cycle, shall be converted to a calendar year cycle from 1 Jan 2021 and this update shall be completed by 31 Jan 2021.

All active members as of 1 Jan 2021 shall receive complimentary membership extensions to 31 Dec of the year their membership expires before they receive reminders for renewal.

Thank you for your understanding. Please refer to the appendix for case examples.

For any queries, please do not hesitate to email us at [email protected]

APHN reserves the right to update our membership subscription model any time with prior notice to members in an appropriate manner.
