Become A CSSC Member

Members are the core of CSSC. Through their actions in campaigns and committees, their work as staff, and as a decision-making body of the organization, they breathe life and passion into CSSC.

We offer four types of membership:

  • Student
  • CSSC staff
  • Alumnx*
  • Community Membership

Student Members are currently enrolled higher education students in California. At CSSC, staff members have the same rights as members. Alumnx* and Community Member are people not currently attending a learning institution and who are currently residing in California.

People of all backgrounds and identities are welcomed in CSSC.

At minimum, members must update their information and areas of interest and pay yearly dues using this Member Sign Up Form.


Members are highly encouraged to attend regional and statewide events or actions and participate in organization elections. Members receive discounted CSSC event registration fees and are invited to exclusive training and leadership events. A special members-only newsletter features event announcements and opportunities.

If you want to maximize your membership with CSSC, use our handy choose-your-own-adventure flow-chart to pick your path. These are only suggestions!

*Alumni (m,p), alumnus (m,s), alumnae (w,p), and alumna (w,s) are gendered terms. We use alumnx to refer to graduates of any gender identity.
