The ATA is a member of the AALAS Site Selection Committee, is invited to all AALAS Board of Trustee meetings, and sits on the AALAS Exhibitor Advisory Committee. During the past few years, the ATA has broadened its scope to include working with the various AALAS branches with the same goal of having good facilities and exhibits at their annual meetings, at sites beneficial and convenient for all attendees.

ATA members receive exhibit points for exhibiting at national AALAS meetings, accrued annually to provide fairness in exhibit booth location in the event of more than one exhibitor wants the same space. This method takes both point count and postmark date on the application for space into consideration when assigning exhibition space, and has worked well over the years. In addition, AALAS provides booth fee discounts for ATA members. Members in good standing receive a six week advance notification for booth space and hotel room bookings for all AALAS National Meeting.
