Membership Information

I want to get a list of your members to use as a mailing list. How do I do this?

How long does it take for my membership application to be approved?

There are a lot of variables associated with this process. The CSSB is committed to processing applications in a timely manner. Your application must be filled out completely with the proper paperwork submitted along with the correct fees (if paying by company check, two separate checks are required, for the membership fee and non-refundable application fee). A District Manager in your area performs a preliminary approval process of the application and then it is presented to the Board of Directors for final approval. The Board of Directors meets quarterly. The Board of Directors may also vote for membership approval via email ballot. This may happen between board meetings, depending upon the total number of applications received.
