Membership Year and Fees
Annual dues are $40.
With the implementation of an online membership system (January 2018), CPTSC memberships now run annually based on the date that you joined or renewed. For example, if you join/renew your membership on January 20, 2018, then you will receive a notice to renew January 20, 2019.
In addition, memberships are now separated from the conference registration fee. Although, if you have typically paid your dues with the annual conference fee, then your membership will come due in October. You will still need to be a member at the time of the annual conference, but we will verify that as we construct the program.
Paying Dues via Mail
If you would rather or if your institution requires it, you can initiate or renew your membership by downloading and completing the membership form (*.pdf) and sending it with your check for $40 made out to CPTSC to
