Your Membership Matters!

Renewal of your NATA membership acts as a one-stop shop and pays your dues for all three levels: NATA, regional district, and state. Many of our initiatives are funded by membership dollars at the NATA, SEATA, and ALATA Levels. These range from the thousands of dollars for our monumental AT Law Update in 2021, to keeping registration costs minimal for our annual CSMM, and offering scholarships, awards, and other opportunities to our members. While NATA membership is encouraged we do understand that NATA membership is not always feasible. If this is your case, reach out to me directly at for an ALATA-only membership for $32 to stay up to date and receive all of the benefits of state membership. ALATA receives a higher benefit from NATA membership than ALATA-only membership. Not sure what all of those benefits are? Contact me directly for more information!


Renewing your membership with NATA is an investment for yourself and the future of your profession! Contact us with any questions on the benefits of membership at the NATA, SEATA, or ALATA levels!
