Local AATF Chapters

The AATF is divided into nine regions with approximately 70 local chapters.
Most chapters include the whole state, although some larger states have several chapters (New York, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, etc.).
Chapters have their own constitutions and officers and may levy additional chapter dues in addition to national dues. Chapter membership is optional, but we encourage members to take advantage of the resources and networking that is available locally.
