Your membership dues are invaluable to continuing the work of CSPT and enlarging its public presence.  The dues will be used solely for the purpose supporting the continuing activities of the Conference.  Our annual conferences are supported mainly by independent funding.  We hope to use membership funds to:

  • Subsidize travel costs for international participants and graduate students to CSPT events.
  • Support initiatives from our regional groups.
  • Support the annual David and Elaine Spitz Book Prize.
  • Help organize the annual reception at APSA.
  • Support the general maintenance of CSPT websites and our online presence.


Members will be given exclusive access to the CSPT archive.  We are also working on getting subscription discounts to leading journals in the field for CSPT members.
