Save as a CSHA member

Did you know that it is less expensive to join CSHA and register as a member for the conference than it is to register as a non-member for the conference?

  • An SLP who is a member of CSHA will pay $399 under the standard rate.
  • CSHA membership for an SLP is $160 a year. The total cost of an SLP membership and SLP member conference registration is $559.
  • An SLP who is not a member of CSHA will pay $575 for non-member under the standard rate.

So, if you join CSHA and register as a member, you actually save $16.

There are similar member savings for SLPAs and students.
