ATF is a member-driven organization. By signing your membership card, you commit to a larger fight to preserve public education and reclaim our profession as educators. Our dues-paying members make it possible for us to advocate with you around professional issues, offer professional development and support, and continue to negotiate contract language and salaries on behalf of all educators in APS. Together, we are stronger. Download application »


Count Me in!

By vote of the 2015 AFT NM Convention, a portion of ATF membership dues ($1.00 per month or $.50 per pay period) is now allocated to the AFT NM COPE (Committee on Political Education) Fund which can be used for political purposes. This is a voluntary designation and you may opt-out at any time by notifying ATF in writing. In opting out, your $1.00 per month will be allocated to the non-political AFT NM Organizing Fund. Neither designation increases dues.

COPE Contribution

OPTIONAL One of the most important ways members can become involved is to make a voluntary additional contribution to the Committee on Political Education (COPE). We invite you to join ATF COPE with a regular contribution of your choice and get active to support political candidates that support us.
