Registered Membership

The CMTA website was created as a place where all those affected by CMT can come share their experiences, learn, have a voice, make a difference, and most importantly fight for a world without CMT. Becoming a registered member of the CMTA website is easy and absolutely FREE of charge.

Subscription Membership

When you purchase a CMTA Subscription Membership, you will receive The CMTA Report quarterly magazine (via PDF download, regular mail, or both). You’ll also continue to receive a 10% discount on items purchased from the CMTA store (some exclusions apply).

The fee for a Subscription Membership, renewable annually, is $30.00.

Star Membership

When you purchase a CMTA STAR Membership, you help fund the operations of the CMTA. Our gift to you for helping support our operations is access to The CMTA Report quartery magazine, an expanded edition of the CMT Survivor’s Guide, and a 20% discount on your CMTA online store purchases (some exclusions apply).

Plus as an added bonus, all new STAR members receive a free pair of shoes from Aetrex. Continuing and renewing STAR members receive 50 percent off every pair ordered online.

Tips for placing a successful order:

  • When ordering your free pair of shoes from Aetrex, please have only the free pair in the shopping cart when you check out. You can place subsequent orders to receive the 50 percent discount.
  • The coupon code for free shoes can only be used once per member and paid membership. The 50 percent discount is only valid for the member holding the membership.
  • Aetrex will honor the coupons for free and half-priced shoes for Aetrex shoes only.*
  • The coupons are valid when ordered online at or by calling their customer service line at 1-800-526-2739.

Thank you for your support as a STAR member. Not a STAR member? To upgrade your Subscription membership to a STAR membership, please call Kim at 1-800-606-2682.

The fee for STAR Membership is $100/year. If you purchase your STAR Membership online, a coupon for a free pair of shoes will be emailed to you. If you become a STAR Member by calling the CMTA, a coupon will be mailed to your home address.
