How do I join the CSCA?

To become a member of the CSCA, simply go to the main ASA membership registration page, select your membership type, and set up your membership account. All CSCA members are also members of the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) in the corresponding membership category.

You may pay for your membership online at the ASA site, or simply mail in your payment in Canadian dollars to the CSCA at  Post Office Box 63082 University Plaza,  Dundas, Ontario L9H 6Y3.  You may also renew your membership online, or mail in your renewal payment to the CSCA. (The Canadian and US dollar will be treated at par for all membership registrations and renewals).

If you have any questions about membership, or the application process, please email Bob Geddes, Secretary/Treasurer of the CSCA, and he will be glad to assist you.

Full, voting membership is open to all persons with at least a bachelor’s degree in science who can give assent to our statement of faith. Science is interpreted broadly to include anthropology, archeology, economics, engineering, history, mathematics, medicine, psychology, and sociology as well as the generally recognized science disciplines. Philosophers and theologians who are interested in science are very welcome.

Associate membership is available to interested nonscientists who can give assent to our statement of faith. Associates receive all member benefits and publications and take part in all the affairs of the CSCA except voting and holding office.

Full-time students may join as Student Members (science majors) with voting privileges or as Student Associates (non-science majors) with no voting privileges. Retired individuals qualify for a reduced rate. Full-time overseas missionaries are entitled to complimentary Associate membership in the CSCA.
