The Association has four membership categories defined in its bylaws and they are:
Voting Privileges at Annual Meeting. Open to North Carolina County or District Boards of Health, County or District Boards of Human Services, and Public Health Authorities upon payment of dues.
Note: Institutional members have voting privileges at the Association’s Annual Meeting. An institutional member shall designate one member of its current governing board to vote on behalf of that institution on any matter to which a member is entitled to vote, and shall notify the association of the name and address of its designee.
Current board members of a governing body that holds institutional membership are automatically individual members without payment of dues.
Current board members of a non-institutional member governing body may become individual members upon payment of dues.
Open to all former Board members and other persons who support the goals of ANCBH upon payment of dues.
Open to duly qualified former members of the ANCBH Board of Directors who are elected to this honorary status by a vote of the Board of Directors.
