Arizona Trail Association
Membership System Updates

May 31, 2022

We are excited to announce that the ATA is in the process of transitioning to a new online platform, specifically designed to meet the needs of our donors, members, and volunteers who are the backbone of the ATA — people like you!

What is changing?

  • Single Sign-In – If you currently have both a member account and a volunteer account with the ATA, you’ll now be able to access that information in one place. More information about this one-stop-shop portal will arrive soon.
  • Option to pay monthly – We have added a recurring monthly option for membership, starting at $5/month. So instead of paying a single amount annually, you can pay just a little bit each month.
  • Pay what you can – We have dissolved historic membership levels, and membership now starts at $35/year or $5/month. We invite you to give what you can when you can to help sustain the ATA. Individual donations and memberships represent a significant portion of our annual budget, and we can’t protect and maintain the AZT without you.
  • Pay on our site – Soon you won’t be redirected to Paypal when you renew your membership, instead, you’ll stay on our page for a secure and seamless checkout process. We’re steadily phasing Paypal out wherever we can on our site.
  • Larger perks are moving – Various membership benefits previously offered (like the pint glasses, mugs, etc.) will now be offered as special premiums during donation drives throughout the year. We’ll send word about the next commemorative mug in our e-news, so stay tuned.

Please note: if you have not received your large perks from a recent renewal (and you opted in for them), we’re on it. We’ve been managing inventory issues and will be in touch soon. If you ever have any questions, please reach out.

We are confident the integration of our various platforms will allow a better and more efficient experience for all of our dedicated members and volunteers.

Thank you in advance for your patience and support as we get this up and running, and we’ll be in touch again soon.
