The ATHE Operations Committee has unanimously approved a shift to a sliding scale membership fee structure. With this new structure, members will self-select a membership rate based on income. (No proof of income or any other aspect of one’s status is required to select the membership rate that best represents your ability to pay). We are moving to this structure, rooted in the consideration of ability to pay and a logic of solidarity, as part of an ongoing effort to increase economic accessibility for current and future ATHE members. 

Join or Renew

For the first year implementation of our new membership structure, the membership year will change.

  • All current ATHE memberships will expire on May 15.
  • You may renew or join beginning on April 15.
  • The membership year will run from May 16, 2020 to April 30, 2021.

ATHE has two groups of members.
