BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP!

THE BENEFITS OF CGSA MEMBERSHIP ARE FAR GREATER THAN THE ANNUAL FEE!
Three levels of member benefits provide customized flexibility. The Essential Membership honours those survey respondents who requested lower dues rates in 2016. The Premium and Ultimate options add more value, some packaging of events, and combine some new personal benefits to compliment the professional benefits. 

What's in it for YOU.....
