We are delighted that you are interested in knowing more about the Colorado Staffing Association (CSA) and possible membership. Our executive director, Stephanie, would be happy to talk to you personally, but in the meantime here is an overview.
We are 1 of 37 chapter organizations affiliated with the American Staffing Association (ASA). We serve the staffing industry in Colorado by providing educational workshops, meetings six times a year and an Owner’s Retreat (annually) and an all-day conference in September. We currently have over 40 paid staffing firms as members and 28 Industry Partner Sponsors. We expect 10-12 new staffing firms to join this year. You can see a list of members, Industry Partners, and events here on our website.
Our CSA dues are $275/year and includes attendance at the member price for 6 events (i.e. annual conference in October) and the Owner's Retreat. We also have a few happy hour networking meetings planned and I urge you to read on about eight more great reasons to join.
