What is the Cost?

Before an individual or chapter is eligible to compete in the State Competition, they must first affiliate and pay their state and national dues. Once again Washington TSA will be taking advantage of National TSA’s online affiliation system. Instructions and the log in for this system can be found by visiting the national website at www.tsaweb.org.

Both State and National dues will be paid directly to the National TSA office, and can be done using Purchase Order, Check, or Credit Card.

TSA offers three curriculum- integrated membership programs. Each chapter chooses the program that works best for them.

Red Chapter Affiliation Program (Red CAP)

A chapter affiliates up to ten members by paying a flat fee (additional members may be added during the year for a fee). The membership fee for Red CAP is $170. To add additional members the cost will be $17 each.

White Chapter Affiliation Program (White CAP)

A chapter affiliates eleven or more members by paying a per member White CAP fee for state and national dues. The membership fee for White CAP is $17 per member.

Blue Chapter Affiliation Program (Blue CAP)

A chapter affiliates an unlimited number of members in a school for a flat fee (typically effective when there are more than 25 members). This option is popular in 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 $650. If you choose this program, please be sure to add all of your member throughout the year to the National Database.

All dues are paid directly to National TSA (including state dues), so you will only need 1 PO or Check. However you can split this amongst a 2 PO’s or Checks or Credit Cards if needed.

Once you have affiliated and paid your dues, your chapter will receive a FREE copy of the Total TSA CD. This 3-CD set includes Membership Materials, Competitive Event Guidelines, and Leadership Activities.

Beyond this, our state conference is offered as an all inclusive cost. The registration fee includes their registration, hotel, and meals. This is an extremely reasonable rate, and will be released in January with the conference registration packet.
