How to become a member

CDSA-ACÉH membership fees cost $180. The adjusted rate for students and underwaged persons is $70. There is also a “pay what you can” option available.

Membership fees are typically paid when you register to attend our conference through the Congress Registration Portal. This year, with the cancellation of Congress, members will need to pay membership fees via PayPal or cheque. 

Please note that you must be a registered member to participate in the AGM and subsequent voting process.
