Membership & Volunteer Opportunities

We serve the Arizona health care community by providing networking opportunities and educational workshops to enable our members stay up to date with ever-changing Healthcare IT technologies, policies, and best practices. You do not need to be a HIMSS member to attend or participate in any of our events offered throughout the year.  

HIMSS membership is designed to help healthcare companies, providers and academic organizations, offer staff and students all of the important resources they will need to succeed at their jobs throughout a dynamically changing health care industry. Membership is comprised of four key areas: Individual, Organizational Affiliate, Academic Affiliate, and Corporate membership.
