Sincerest thanks to our charter members for their investment in the Association and the future of the talent acquisition profession.
We understand you might have questions about ATAP. We’re here to help. Below are answers to some frequently asked questions.
Does it matter what level I am in my organization?
No—our members range from senior talent acquisition executives to those new to the talent acquisition and recruiting profession. We encourage all levels to join our inclusive community.
I am a recruiter at a staffing firm. Can I join?
Yes, ATAP is for all professionals with talent acquisition, sourcing and staffing related responsibilities.
I work for an HR tech provider, vendor or consulting firm. Can I join?
Yes, we believe in order to advance our profession, we should include and align with professionals who provide the right solutions and tools to help us do our jobs better.
How long is my membership good for?
Your membership year is your anniversary date, except for early members (those who join before our official launch). For example, if you join ATAP on September 1, 2017, your membership is valid until September 1, 2018. However, early first-year charter and individual members will have their anniversary date coincide with the official ATAP launch date. Lifetime charter members have membership for … a lifetime!
Does ATAP offer group or corporate memberships?
Please contact us to learn more about these membership options.
Is there a student membership level?
At this time, we do not have a student membership level. However, this is on our road map, so please check back later in the year.
If my employer pays for my membership and I leave the employer, will I lose my ATAP membership?
ATAP membership belongs to the individual member, regardless of who pays for it. If your employer pays for your membership and you leave to join another organization, you will retain your ATAP membership and can renew at the end of your membership year.
If I leave the talent acquisition profession during the membership year, can I request a refund?
No, ATAP memberships are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Can I share my membership credentials with others?
No, ATAP memberships are individual memberships and cannot be shared with non-members. Instead, please encourage others to join ATAP.
Are my dues tax deductible?
ATAP membership dues may be tax deductible. Please check the IRS website and with your financial advisor.
The time really is now. Be a part of talent acquisition history. #ATAPGlobal
