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 $100 at the national level plus state dues.
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 $10 per member at the national level plus state dues.
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 30 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 $350 at the national level plus state dues.
The chapter affiliation program you choose must be the same at the state and national level. Red CAP chapters become White CAP chapters automatically when they affiliate eleven or more members. Red CAP or White CAP chapters may convert to Blue CAP at any time. TSA operates under a unified dues policy, whereby members must affiliate and pay applicable dues at the local, state and national level.
