Professional Members
($100 annually)
 
Three categories of "Professionals:"
Those  seeking "
Professional Membership" status with CPSDA may be asked to document their work as a sports dietitian in an athletic, tactical (military or law enforcement), or Olympic setting.  Beginning in 2014, Professional members are invited to enroll in "Central Desktop," a subscription-based service that is designed to facilitate faster and more efficient information sharing.  Annual membership fees for CPSDA members in the "Professional" category were raised to $100 effective January 1, 2014 to help offset our per-member subscription cost of the "Central Desktop" system. If you haven't already accepted our invitation to enroll in Central Desktop, please e-mail your request for another invitation to info@SportsRD.org.

Professional members will fall into one of three classifications: 

VeteranRegistered Dietitians with seven or more years of experience as an employee of a University athletic department, professional sports team, Olympic, military or law enforcement setting and currently employed full-time (an average of 40 hours per week) primarily in one work settings. 

Experienced:  Registered Dietitians with from two to seven years of experience as an employee of a University athletic department, professional sports team, Olympic, military or law enforcement setting and currently employed full-time (an average of 40 hours per week) primarily in one work settings.  

Qualified: Registered Dietitians with less than two years of experience as an employee of a University athletic department, professional sports team, Olympic, military or law enforcement setting and currently employed full-time (an average of 40 hours per week) primarily in one work settings.  


Important note: Professional members may be required to complete a brief questionnaire to validate their type of work and work history.  New members who fail to respond to the questionnaire within 30 days of their "join date" will be categorized as Associate CPSDA members.

Associate Allied Health Care ($60 annually)
and, purely as an option,
Associate Allied Health Care PLUS ($100 annually)

Associate Allied Health Care:  A category of CPSDA membership reserved for Registered  Dietitians who do not work full-time with athletes in one setting, such as a university or with a professional sports team.  Associate Allied Health Care members include consulting RDs, PhDs, university instructors, athletic trainers, physical therapists and  strength coaches. Registered Dietitians currently pursuing a career as a full-time Sports RD are encouraged to join CPSDA in this category until such time as you are employed at least 40 hours per week in an athletic setting working day-to-day with athletes.  Annual membership fee is $60, which includes full CPSDA listserv privileges.  New members will receive an invitation to join the CPSDA listserv within a few days of joining.  Current members who are not currently receiving the CPSDA listserv, and would like to, are invited to e-mail us for an invitation at info@SportsRD.org

Associate Allied Health Care PLUS This category is identical to the Associate Allied Health Care (above), but also includes a monthly subscription to Central Desktop, the information-sharing platform introduced in 2013 for CPSDA Professional members.  Associate Health Care members who wish to access research, webinars and other current information that is uploaded by Professional members of CPSDA are invited to "opt-in" on Central Desktop by paying the $100 membership fee.  You will then receive an invitation from CPSDA to enroll in Central Desktop. If you do not receive your invitation within three business days of joining CPSDA as an Associate Allied Health Care PLUS member, please e-mail us at info@SportsRD.org.
