Members Build Membership in CSTA

Have you ever wondered about the other members of CSTA? Questions like "Where are the other members?" or "Who are the other members?"

One of the best ways to grow membership in an organization is by word of mouth. In the last fourteen months, CSTA has grown from 4700 members to our current 7300 members. Yes, our membership has grown by 50% and continues to grow! This couldn't be done without the continued support and work of our current members. Thank you to everyone who has recruited new members to CSTA!

Our new local chapters are also playing a major role CSTA's growth. Not only do these chapters carry out the work of CSTA on a local level (providing a community of learners, offering professional development, sharing resources) they also help to build membership by making people aware of the benefits of belonging to CSTA. So, a thank you is also due to the members who have taken the time to organize and charter local chapters in their states. For a list of local chapters and contacts see:

While a large portion of CSTA membership is located in the US (80%), our International membership Is also growing. In fact, it has increased 35% in the same fourteen month period. India leads the way in International growth with 221 members added within the last fourteen months for a total growth of 50%.

Keep up the great work and keep recruiting.
