The new CSTA+ membership tier allows us to deliver a much richer level of support and value, without impacting the support we offer our standard, nonpaid members. It will also help us grow and sustain our local chapters, annual events, and central organization. Best of all, 50% of CSTA+ dues will go directly to local chapter programs.
