Your ATA membership features many benefits, including having your business information listed in the ATA Membership Directory. This list provides contact information for all ATA members, and is available free to ATA members only.

The ATA Membership Directory is a great business-development tool that helps members discuss industry issues and follow up on business leads. The directory is a great perk of ATA membership, but stay alert for scammers who try to trick members with fake lists.

Finding the Real ATA Membership List

To request the official ATA membership list you must sign a confidentiality agreement and be verified by ATA staff to ensure you’re an authorized source with ATA-member credentials. This process ensures the privacy of everyone on the list. The request form can be found on the Exhibitor Regulations & Service Providers Page, or through the member login portal at ArcheryTrade.org. Once you create a login, click the “Members Only” tab and then “Membership Directory.”

 

Spotting a Fake List

If you receive an offer for a list that’s not sent directly from the ATA or the ATA’s website, the list is a fake. Counterfeit offers for the list usually arrive through email and phone.

“Access to a member list is a benefit of ATA membership, and we don’t charge for it,” said Wendy Lang, senior manager of ATA membership. “If someone asks for money in exchange for the list, it’s a scam. That’s the biggest red flag our members should watch for.”

To request a copy of the list, report a counterfeit list, or ask any questions, please contact Wendy Lang at (507) 233-8134 or wendylang@archerytrade.org.
