Unlike many organizations, CoSA recognizes the variability of its members’ budgets and has a long history of seeking ways to include the entire state and territorial archival community in our activities. Per CoSA’s bylaws, “Membership shall be continuous regardless of dues payment status.” This welcoming environment depends on the continued financial support of our membership. We ask that you consider the benefits of membership where - year over year - we show that every dollar invested in your organization returns an increased value in programming for your institution and its employees.
If your institution is unable to contribute a dues payment of any amount, you will still have access to many membership benefits. However, the staff of members who do not pay are not eligible for board service or complimentary annual meeting registration. While any staff or members are eligible for awards, non-paying members may not nominate awards.
