What is EDAC-ATAC?

EDAC-ATAC is a Canadian organization of professionals in the field of eating disorders and related areas, dedicated to serving the needs of those whose lives are impacted by eating disorders.  Our national community is small, our geography huge.  Membership to our growing organization provides numerous opportunities for communication and collaboration across our country!

The EDAC-ATAC Board of Directors would like to welcome new members and to thank renewing members for their support of EDAC-ATAC , each and every year.  We encourage those involved in the care and research of eating disorders to stand up and be counted amongst peers from across Canada in strengthening this new and first ever Canadian association of eating disorder professionals.

In the initial years, annual dues will be nominal as EDAC-ATAC establishes itself and determines further benefits of membership.  Members will receive the EDAC-ATAC quarterly newsletter, reduced fees at the EDAC-ATAC biennial conference (Vancouver, BC, 2014), a reduction in fees for Academy of Eating Disorders membership, and the opportunity to participate in a national forum of eating disorder professionals.

Membership dues will help support the Board of Directors in working together to establish the groundwork for what we hope will be a vibrant and scholarly association.  Our national community is small, our geography huge.  EDAC-ATAC needs your help and hopes that you will also consider volunteering some time to help us develop.  Let’s join together to make this happen!

EDAC-ATAC is registered as a not for profit organization in the Province of Ontario.  Membership will be for a calendar year.  Individual membership dues will be $75.
