Welcome fellow CLS alum, we are happy to have you here! As a proud 501(c)(3) non-profit, we would like to be as transparent as possible about our one-time $15 registration fee.
CLSAS, as an organization, is run by a group of 10 volunteers - your leadership board. We completely rely on grant funding, monetary/in-kind donations, and our registration fee in order to carry out our mission and operate the organization. We strive to provide all CLS alum with professional development events, relevant job postings, networking opportunities, discounts and partnerships with language learning and retention programs, an annual conference, career fairs, and much more!
In addition to all of the events and opportunities we have for our members, we also incur annual fees to run the organization itself. These fees include web hosting, email hosting, legal fees, fees to maintain our non-profit status, banking fees, etc.
We want to assure each and every member that 100% of CLSAS's net-income from your registration fee and/or donation is put straight back into the organization itself to pay for operating costs or to organize events for our members.
To become a member, please apply using the button above. Once you complete the application, we will verify your alumni status with American Councils for International Education. Once verified and registration has been paid, you will become a lifetime member of CLSAS!
If you have any questions about membership, CLSAS, or the application, please don't hesitate to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
