CSTA Subscriptions 2020 ... NOW PAYABLE ?
The committee is pleased to advise that subs' for 2010 (listed below), are the same as they have for the past 12 years.
Membership remains highly cost effective for schools, institutions or individuals, but the Association is very dependent on this financial support.
In fact a current subscription is required for the use of any CSTA resources.
The committee anticipates that this will significantly encourage schools and individuals to support the CSTA , and allow the continuation of the professional sharing of science ideas, pedagogy and resources that are the ethos of this Incorporated Society.
Period of subscription.
The period for which the annual subscription applies is 1 January to 31 December.
