Membership Starts Here

Membership in TSA covers each school year.  TSA membership begins when a chapter completes affiliation, and ends at the conclusion of the national TSA conference.


TSA offers three curriculum-integrated membership programs. Chapters choose the program that works best for them:


Red Chapter Affiliation Program (Red CAP)
A chapter affiliates up to 10 members by paying a flat fee (members may be added during the year for an additional fee). The membership fee for Red CAP is $120 at the national level, plus state dues of $80.


White Chapter Affiliation Program (White CAP)
A chapter affiliates 11 or more members by paying a per member fee for state and national dues. The membership fee for White CAP is $12 per member at the national level, plus state dues of $8 per member.


Blue Chapter Affiliation Program (Blue CAP)
A chapter affiliates an unlimited number of members in a school for a flat fee. This option is popular among chapters in which students rotate through a STEM class for a portion of the year because it enables all students to be members. The membership fee for Blue CAP is $400 at the national level, plus state dues of $350.



The registration system for the TSA State Conference will open soon and close on December 8, 2023.
