State oral health coalitions may apply for membership in ANOHC using either of the online or mail-in application options. Applying coalitions must also complete ANOHC's State Oral Health Comparison Tool Survey using this link, as well as remit membership dues on a sliding-fee scale (coalitions with no budget do not have to pay dues). Dues must be paid by March 31, 2020, in order for coalition representatives to attend the ANOHC Annual Meeting (April 5, 2020). Any members who have not submitted their dues by that date will be removed from the ANOHC listserv.
ANOHC offers two payment options for membership dues:
1. Mail a check payable to ANOHC to 712 S. Kansas Avenue, Suite 412, Topeka, KS 66603.
2. Pay electronically using the PayPal below (please note that a 2.9% surcharge is built into the dues amount to cover the PayPal merchant fee):
The ANOHC board recognizes that many state coalitions are facing particular funding challenges this year. If those challenges prevent your coalition from paying the dues amount associated with your budget, please use the field on the application to explain your situation and indicate the maximum dues amount that is feasible for you. In order to cover our fundamental expenses, we ask this be a minimum of $100 and that you only request an accommodation if absolutely necessary. ANOHC needs your financial support more than ever to serve as an effective advocate for the issues critical to its members, and to provide valuable connections, guidance, and resources to members in the coming year.
