ATI General Membership

Anyone with an interest in the Alexander Technique and the aims of ATI can join and become a General Member. All members may vote and hold ATI offices.


 

ATI Trainee Membership

ATI acknowledges that people train in a variety of ways. We foster a sense of belonging to a worldwide community from the very beginning of a trainee's journey. Thus 'Trainee membership' in ATI is available to all trainees in any Alexander Technique training program throughout the world, regardless of whether their director of training is a member of ATI or not.

Because ATI recognizes that trainees incur substantial costs to train, we would like to offer benefits of full ATI membership at the substantially reduced rate of $56.50 (USD). Once a trainee has qualified to teach, if they elect to sustain their ATI membership, they would pay the normal teaching member rate of $184.50 (USD) per year.

Trainee membership includes voting rights, receiving the ATI membership Directory, the ExChange journal three times a year, the e-communiqué, and the additional benefit of a 50% reduction in the AGM conference fee.

Please note that for Trainee membership status, proof of training is required. Also, proof of a record of termination or graduation from any given training program is necessary when applying for a teaching membership. Please contact, the ATI-USA Office for additional information.
