NACCHO Affiliates


NACCHO has 8 Affiliates. These affiliates have a number of full and associate members (except in ACT and Tasmania which have just one service each).

Full members have voting rights to elect the Board of their local NACCHO affiliate and to vote for the state or territory representatives on the NACCHO Board. This election process occurs at the Annual General Meeting of each NACCHO Affiliate.

Associate members of Affiliates are not members of NACCHO. They do not meet the criteria for NACCHO membership for a variety of reasons. Many are striving to become full members with support from the Affiliates.

Click on the state or territory below to find out who is the NACCHO Affiliate for that state or territory . There is also a link to the Affiliate’s website for further information on their full and associate members and services they provide.

More information on how membership of NACCHO is determined is available in our constitution.

You can contact our Affiliates thru their websites
