Last Updated: Monday, 13 February 2017

The ATA releases a Membership Directory so that its members can connect with other collectors around the world who share their collecting interests. Nearly 1,200 topics can be chosen to pinpoint interest areas, or major topic areas can be chosen. One can also list individualized "tiny" topics not given in the main list. The major parts of the Directory are:

Topics listed in thematic order (Nature, Culture, Technology--as used in FIP exhibitions). Under each topic is a list of all responding ATA members who collect stamps related to the topic.

An alphabetical listing of ATA members and the topics each collects. Some members have "tiny" topics of specific interest. Many members list contact information, too. The ATA Office routes communications between members who prefer anonymity.

Other features of the Directory include a listing of philatelic websites maintained by members, a list of member dealers and a list of international members according to individual country.

ATA has published a triennial directory since the early 1950s. Members may order the 2015-2017 directory at a reduced 2017 cost of $5 plus postage ($3 US, $6 Canada, $13 International). New member price at time of application to ATA is $4 with free postage to US and Canada. Payment by check or  mixed mint US postage-or PayPal or debit/credit card through Only ATA members may purchase a Directory, and it cannot be used for commercial purposes.
