Freedom from Sexual Violence

Become a Member

It is easy and affordable to become a member, and the benefits of CCASA membership are countless. As a statewide coalition, CCASA supports local organizations through technical assistance, training, information and referrals, educational materials, news updates, and public policy advocacy. CCASA also provides opportunities to build bridges between those who work directly with survivors and community allies in order to strengthen the collective voice for eliminating sexual violence in Colorado.  Because Colorado is a large state with many members not centrally located, CCASA categorizes members based on region.  Click here to view CCASA’s regions map.

Types of Membership

Agency Membership (Voting)

Agency memberships are designed for an entire agency or office/department within an agency that will be accessing CCASA resources and services for their staff, volunteers, and clients. In addition to the general member benefits, agency members may access bulk bundles of 50 CCASA publications for distribution to their clients. Their staff members and volunteers may also attend CCASA events at low or no cost. Agency members can participate in voting on organizational matters (i.e., election of Board of Directors, membership dues, by-laws changes), and are encouraged to participate in CCASA committees and ensure that their agencies have a voice on the state level.  Membership dues are based upon annual operating budget.  View CCASA’s membership dues chart here.

Individual Voting Membership

Individual voting memberships are designed for community members and other interested individuals who want to be involved with statewide efforts, access general member benefits, and are involved enough with CCASA to feel informed and participate in voting on organizational matters (i.e., election of Board of Directors, membership dues, by-laws changes). A limited number of CCASA publications are permitted to individual members at no cost and no or low-cost entrance to events is limited to that single member. Individual voting memberships are not encouraged if you plan to access CCASA publications and events for, or on behalf of, your agency or clients. Individual voting members are also encouraged to participate in CCASA committees and have a voice on the state level.  Dues are based upon annual individual income. View CCASA’s membership dues chart here.

Individual Supporting Membership

Individual supporting memberships are designed for community members and other interested individuals who want to be involved with statewide efforts and access general member benefits, but are not involved enough with CCASA to feel informed and participate in voting on organizational matters (i.e., election of Board of Directors, membership dues, by-laws changes). A limited number of CCASA publications are permitted to individual members at no cost and no or low-cost entrance to events is limited to that single member. Individual supporting memberships are not encouraged if you plan to access CCASA publications and events for, or on behalf of, your agency or clients. Individual supporting members are also encouraged to participate in CCASA committees and have a voice on the state level.  Dues are $50 per year.

Student Supporting Membership

Student supporting memberships are designed for currently enrolled students with a valid student ID from a high school, college, university, community college or trade school. Student members will receive CCASA communications including policy updates and advocacy resources, no or low cost registration at CCASA trainings and events, and are also encouraged to participate in CCASA committees and have a voice on the state level. Supporting Student Members do not have voting rights within the organization.  Students who want to have voting rights should apply for a Voting Individual Membership.  Dues are $25 per year.

Focus areas of membership services

Community Building/Networking

CCASA holds an annual statewide meeting, biannual regional meetings, monthly webinars, local and web-based meetings upon request, networking events, and other opportunities for members and allies to come together. The various events hosted by CCASA are available to members at no or discounted cost and provide the opportunity to collaborate, share resources, and learn strategies for working together as a collective voice for ending sexual violence in Colorado.

Public Policy

CCASA addresses public policy issues which affect survivors of sexual assault on both the state and national level. Coalition representatives provide testimony and educate lawmakers concerning sexual violence in Colorado. Members are encouraged to participate in CCASA’s Public Policy Committee in order to discuss and prioritize current sexual assault policy issues.

Training

CCASA provides training, education, and technical/staff support on a variety of topics to members, at no or discounted cost. We design new trainings on an ongoing basis in order to meet members’ needs; offer web-based training opportunities to save time and resources; work closely with other organizations and agencies in Colorado, as well as statewide coalitions in other states, to bring their experience and expertise to you; and seek to create a speakers bureau of experts in specific fields, or with particular knowledge, relevant to sexual assault services and prevention programming.

Publications

CCASA members receive a limited number of free copies of CCASA publications in English and/or Spanish (Toward Healing and Justice: A handbook for survivors of sexual assault; About Sexual Assault; and What Happened?: Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault). Click here for a full listing of publications. Members are also encouraged to submit their organization’s news, events, job openings, and updates to be included on our website listings.
