Join CPSDA online in 3 easy steps
The online application process for joining CPSDA is an easy three-step process that takes just a few minutes. The annual membership fee for "Professional" and "Associate PLUS" members is $100, which reflects the cost of providing subscription-based "Central Desktop" (research repository for Sports RDs) as part of your membership benefits. See the "Central Desktop" tab at our main web site SportsRD.org for more information. Associate Health Care members may join and renew their annual membership for $60, or upgrade to "Associate PLUS" for $100 annually. Students of Dietetics are required to pay a $40 annual membership fee, which makes them available for the CPSDA listserv. The Central Desktop subscription service is not available to students of dietetics.
WITHIN 72 HOURS OF JOINING CPSDA, ALL NEW MEMBERS MUST KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR E-MAIL INVITATIONS TO JOIN THE CPSDA LISTSERV; AND NEW "PROFESSIONAL" OR "ASSOCIATE PLUS" MEMBERS MUST ALSO BE LOOKING FOR A SEPARATE INVITATION TO THE CENTRAL DESKTOP SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE.
The CPSDA by-laws permit the CPSDA Board of Directors to request verification of employment status and/or Sports RD work history to validate status in the "Professional" category of membership. And students of dietetics may be required to validate school enrollment.
Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards are accepted for payment. Sorry, but American Express and debit cards are not accepted. Checks for membership can be mailed to CPSDA: c/o Timothy Communications Inc, 38 E. Lucas Drive, Palos Hills, IL 60465 Attn: John LeGear, CPSDA Operations.
Current members who change their e-mail address should update their CPSDA member profile (often done when renewing membership) and, importantly, send a "change of e-mail address" to CPSDA at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can update your listserv and Central Desktop connections.
Upon joining online, you'll receive an E-mail with a printed receipt confirming your membership and the amount paid.
To apply for CPSDA membership:
- Click the Member sign-up button on the menu bar to your left and choose the appropriate category of membership. Please take care to choose the most appropriate membership category (to learn more visit our "Join CPSDA" page at www.SportsRD.org.
- Fill out the application online and make sure to use one of the types of credit card approved by CPSDA. You then will receive an invitation via e-mail from Yahoo Groups to join the CPSDA ListServ within 3 business days of joining, and you must accept that invitation. New "Professional" and new "Associate PLUS" members will receive a separate e-mail invitation asking for confirmation to gain access to Central Desktop, CPSDA's research repository.
- CPSDA makes every effort to verify you're in the proper category of membership, but we rely entirely on volunteer staff to do so. If you're not quite sure, please inquire further either by E-mailing us at info@SportsRD.org or calling our administrative offices at 708-431-6919. Thank you.
