The American Telecommuting Association
Invites You To Eliminate Your Commute!

The American Telecommuting Association

Washington, DC 20005



Millions of people in the United States and around the world have discovered the power, the pleasure, and the productivity improvement that comes with Telecommuting to work. This is your invitation to join us and help to share these benefits with others.

A simple $10 donation gives you proud membership in the American Telecommuting Association, and gives us the power to continue distributing information and know-how about telecommuting to the thousands of people who inquire every month. If you are an employer, we ask for $10 per year per telecommuter (remember that telecommuting need not be a five-day-a-week proposition; many telecommuters work out of the office only a few days per month). If you're enjoying the benefits of telecommuting, or if you'd like to, won't you please make a donation to help the ATA continue its mission of enlightenment and empowerment?

 As we have done every year since 1993, the American Telecommuting Association is declaring "Telecommuter Appreciation Week". In 2007, "Telecommuter Appreciation Week" falls on the period from February 25 through March 3 (in homage to Alexander Graham Bell, whose birthday is March 3rd).
