“CSA is a different kind of Association.

— CitSciVirtual attendee (2021)

  • Connections: Access a global community of practitioners from across disciplines, roles, and career stages. Conversations: Join member-only discussion events and groups to dive deep into cross-cutting topics.

What sets CSA apart?

Our members unite from across all disciplines, and represent all skills and perspectives needed for projects to thrive. We focus on the practices that work for effective projects, and we know just how hard this work can be. CSA is the only US-based organization that offers you the insights you need to complement your own expertise, for integrity in these complex collaborations.

You don’t have to do this work alone! CSA is the place for cross-cutting conversations and collaborations that just can’t be found anywhere else.

Join this Community as an Individual

Join any time – membership is good for one calendar year. You can join as an individual, or consider inviting your project or organization to join as an Affiliate for additional group benefits (Affiliate details available here). 

CSA is committed to inclusive and equitable access to membership. 

Our tiered membership structure reflects that the value and benefit of membership does not look the same for everyone in this field. Please join at the highest rate within your capacity. If you are unsure which rate suits your circumstance, the quiz tool can help you decide. >>

Still have questions? Details on membership can be found here.
