The New Year comes a-knocking. 
Time to renew commitments
and plan ahead.


We are starting 2015 with renewed energy. An Interim Board has been appointed to reorganize ATIF and prepare the Association for elections in 2015: Gio Lester, President, Daniela Guanipa, Vice President, Emmy Prieto, Secretary, Maria Mallarino, Treasurer, and Dianna McCrary, Carmen Saenz and Sylvia Korwek, Directors. The Interim Board takes office on January 1, 2015. 


Why join ATIF?


In the block below we share the schedule of activities for the first quarter of the new year.  In addition, we will be rolling out our new website with a completely new look and feel: it will be more efficient and easy to search, so your clients and other end-users can find you easily. There will also be useful members-only pages with resources, presentation files, links of interest, and links to T&I retailers offering discounts to our members. 


Besides the benefits above, ATIF also brings continuing education credit opportunities to Florida at affordable prices. And we are always on the lookout for new locations and offerings.


We  thank all the members who have already renewed their membership in ATIF for the coming year, and remind the rest to renew by December 31 to take advantage of the IRS tax break for business expenses. 

Our members help ATIF grow when they engage actively with the Association, share their ideas, and volunteer.  We look forward to hearing from you!
