Provisional Facility Member

Provisional Facility Member

Provisional Facility Membership may be granted to firms, corporations, partnerships or individuals who can demonstrate that they are in the process of acquiring or building a facility which can reasonably be expected to have an ALF or AFCH license within one year of joining. Provisional Facility Membership is provided for up to 12 months, until the facility is licensed. Once licensed, the facility’s member dues are then calculated on the number of licensed beds for the remainder of the current year and an invoice is issued for any prorated net dues balance that may be due.

Provisional Facility Members receive full member benefits, with the exception of voting privileges at any meeting of the membership. Voting privileges will be instated once the facility is licensed and full standard membership dues are paid.

2024 Provisional Facility Membership Dues
Level I (up to 16 beds) $200.00
Level II (17 or more beds) $500.00
