ATA members do business with ATA members. Not only do ATA events provide groundbreaking education for our members, all activities place specific emphasis on enhancing business relationships and forging new ones with industry colleagues. Channel leaders know that ATA is the only professional association 100% dedicated to Teleservices professionals. Offering you easy access to industry leaders in your area of interest and expertise is just one more way ATA membership contributes to your bottom line.
Protection from Government Regulations
The Teleservices channel is faced with legislative challenges in Congress and state legislatures. From do not call lists to privacy regulations to calling time restrictions, ATA educates lawmakers on the importance of the Teleservices channel and aggressively opposes potentially damaging legislation. Whether testifying in front of Congress, working with the regulatory agencies, participating in the US Government Affairs Committees, or personally contacting members of Congress, the ATA is an active voice for the Teleservices channel on Capitol Hill. ATA’s Washington Summit gives you the inside track on emerging legislation and a chance to interact directly with the policymakers impacting your bottom line.
Beyond Washington, ATA’s grassroots action network extends to statehouses across the country. The ATA’s state legislative team has successfully organized efforts against unreasonable privacy legislation; do not call lists, disclosure requirements, and technology bans. The ATA Regulatory Guide keeps subscribers informed on current and proposed legislation that impacts the industry.
ATA’s Annual Convention & Expo is the Teleservices industry’s premier event and a culmination of the association’s annual activities. Offering exceptional business value, ATA provides attendees with cutting edge professional development from industry experts responsible for the newest trends in teleservices. Outstanding networking events throughout the convention are your passport to networking opportunities with industry leaders from around the globe.
In addition to valuable national activities, ATA members can enjoy the full range of membership benefits without having to leave their local area. ATA’s growing network of regional chapters provides an exclusive forum for Teleservices professionals, offering members regular cutting edge educational, advocacy, and networking activities all designed to improve the member’s bottom line. To accommodate ATA’s mobile Teleservices executives, association membership is your open invitation to participate in events organized by any ATA chapter worldwide. In addition to the in-person events, and conference calls for Chapter Members, the ATA also provides a unique way to communicate and post information on each Chapter’s own website, incorporated into the www.ataconnect.org website. Throughout the year the ATA offers ten Compliance Seminars. Program curriculum is constantly reviewed to ensure ATA members have access to the most valuable educational opportunities and most knowledgeable experts available.
Suffering from information overload? The ATA filters news for you! The ATA stays in constant contact with its members through eConnections, the association’s bi-weekly email newsletter. Breaking news, emerging issues, in-depth analysis, association news and reminders, and links to crucial information for the teleservices professional are delivered every other week to members’ inboxes. Our website is the channel’s first stop for information. In addition, several attorneys affiliated with the ATA have provided us with their newsletters to further provide ATA members with up-to-date compliance and regulation help.
