Alexander Technique Affiliated Societies (ATAS) is a valuable point of contact between the South African Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (SASTAT) and other professional Alexander teacher societies around the world. All the organisations who participate in ATAS recognise the teaching members of all other affiliated societies.
There are 18 such organisations internationally, one of which is SASTAT in South Africa. ATAS considers issues of reciprocal recognition between societies, the professional profile of the Alexander Technique, the commonly held standards and aims and procedures of the affiliated societies, as well as their standards of professional conduct and membership requirements. Here is a list of ATAS affiliated societies:
