Colorado Student Media Association

CSMA

How do we join or renew?

JOIN US!

We are now the Colorado Student Media Association (as of July 1, 2015) and our goal is to bring all Colorado student media programs, whether middle school or high school, into our association. We are more powerful together than isolated on our campuses. Membership is an amazing value, including both individual and overall media contests and critiques. A media critique from a national service can run well over $100 by itself, but our service is included in your $65 annual dues.

Want more reasons to become an active member? Check out our August, 2014 welcome back to CHSPA letter.

GOOD NEWS! You can once again pay for any CSMA (formerly CHSPA) services (including membership dues and J-Day registration) using your school or personal credit card. Of course, we also accept school checks.

Membership for CSMA is by individual school medium, and we now have memberships for newspaper, yearbook, video broadcast, and website. It can save your school some money to combine all media offered on a single form. We also offer a much-reduced registration fee for J-Day for our members.

Our bylaws call for all renewals to be filed not later than Oct. 1 of each year (and membership qualifies you for special pricing for J-Day registration). Only CSMA member media may enter our Best of Colorado awards and the All-Colorado critique and ratings program.

The easiest way to join CSMA (or renew) is to follow this link to our online registration form. You will have an opportunity to either pay by credit card or check (your membership will be updated once the check arrives).

If you prefer, you can use our downloadable membership form and either attach it to an email to jpkjournalism@gmail.com or mail it to 9253 Sori Lane, Highlands Ranch CO 80126. Download the interactive School Media Membership Form here. IMPORTANT: Mac users should make sure you are NOT opening this PDF in PREVIEW mode. Your entries will not “stick,” otherwise. Be sure your default in Acrobat is READER mode. There is a place for all credit card information, if that is convenient for you.
