Membership in TSA runs for each school year. The term of the 2021-2022 TSA membership begins when a chapter is affiliated, and ends at the conclusion of the 2022 National TSA Conference on June 30, 2022. 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 (additional members may be added during the year for a fee). The membership fee for Red CAP is $120 at the national level, plus $60 state dues.
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 $6 state dues.
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 where students rotate through a STEM class for a portion of the year to enable all students to be members. The membership fee for Blue CAP is $400 at the national level, plus $175 state dues.
