Membership -

ATFE is your professional association. It's the source of resources, relationships and education for theological field educators. No other organization has these essential ingredients for maintaining the excellence in theological field education.

ATFE annual membership operates on a calendar fiscal year.

ATFE membership accords to individuals.  However, in order to keep dues affordable and because we are an ever-fluctuating group of individuals, we allow institutions to pay dues in a lump sum for all of their field education personnel.  Institutional Membership dues cover membership for all individuals at that institution for one calendar year.  We also have Individual Membership and Emeritus Membership dues categories.  Dues are payable to the Association for Theological Field Education and may be paid by check or by credit card. 

2019-2021 rates for dues:

          Institutional Membership for U.S. Members: $150 U.S.

          Institutional Membership for Canadian and other non-U.S. Members: $130 U.S.

          Individual Membership (for those who are not covered by an institution): $110.00 U.S.

          Emeritus Membership (for retired field educators): $35.00 U.S.
