SAHANZ aims to promote the understanding and enjoyment of architectural history through scholarly discussion, criticism and debate.
All who support the society's goals are welcome to join the society. Members from all corners of the globe receive the society's journal Fabrications, qualify for a discount fee to the annual mid-year conference and have access to the members' email list (see below).

There are several membership categories:

  • Ordinary
  • Student
  • Benefactor
  • Honorary
  • Life

Honorary memberships acknowledge contribution to the field of architectural history in Australasia, while Life memberships acknowledge contribution to the discipline made by members of the society.
Architectural practices and heritage consultancies are able to join at either an Ordinary or Benefactor member rate. These members receive a subscription to Fabrications and are able to nominate one staff member to attend the conference at a member rate.
