Time to Renew Your FSA Membership

All FSA Memberships expire on June 30, 2020

 

We have designed 2020-2021 to support our members with both virtual and in-person meetings, and greater member benefits. Here is what we have in store to maximize your member value:

  • This summer, we will run a virtual social or webinar every week (member only)
  • Starting in September, we will run one webinar and one virtual social each month (member only)
  • Members will continue to get recordings of all webinars, available on the replay page here, in case you miss any
  • Every chapter meeting will have a virtual component, for those who cannot attend in person. They will be either virtual only, or a hybrid of live plus streamed, depending on safety considerations
  • Members who pay will get recordings for chapter meetings
  • Members who attend in person can join the member-only lunch with speaker (additional charge)
  • Professional members will get a new listing on a custom “Hire a Speaker” page (instead of eSpeakers) which will offer better exposure for our professional members

NEW THIS YEAR:

Two membership packages to accommodate your individual financial situation: Standard and Enhanced Value.

Standard: Pay only for those chapter meetings you choose. $175 membership, chapter meetings paid separately.

This is a $78 savings over the early registration price, or $303 over the late registration price. $448 membership (including all chapter meetings). The enrollment period for this option has passed.
