The Americas Hernia Society (AHS) Corporate Alliance (CA) is a group of manufacturers who provide service and/or materials to assist professionals in the diagnosis or treatment of disorders of the abdominal wall. The Corporate Alliance is committed to supporting scientific programs of the organization.

Each Corporate Alliance member has one representative to act as the main contact for that company. It is the company representative’s responsibility to attend the CA board meetings, pass along information to other representatives in the company, and be the point of contact for CA correspondence.

To become a member of the Corporate Alliance, your company will need to submit an application to the AHS. Once the application is received it is presented to the AHS Board of Directors for approval. Once approved, the company is included in the exhibit selection rotation, breakfast & lunch and learn rotation, a representative is chosen to receive correspondence, and you are expected to attend two board meetings a year.

Each year the Corporate Alliance will select a representative to serve on the Board of the AHS for a one-year period, based on rotation. The elected CA representative, will be invited to attend meetings of the AHS Board, as well as run the CA meetings for that year. That position will be rotated between the participating member-companies.
