NSS-CDS/NSS Registration

Postby gmelton » Jul 29, 2011 1:58 pm

NSS-CDS registration is now being processed by the NSS. The NSS is currently working on adding online registration for the NSS-CDS to the NSS website. Currently the only way to register is to download the NSS-CDS registration form from the NSS-CDS website (www.nsscds.org) and fill the form out. Send the completed form to the address on the bottom of the form by postal service or fax it to the NSS at 256-851-9241 or scan it and email it to Stephanie Rubio <assistant@caves.org>. The goal is to have the online registration operational around mid-August.

Gene this is great news. The NSS has an office with paid professionals and the full member database. There are going to be some scale economies that are bound to save the CDS some bucks, as well as ensuring a more timely and accurate registration/renewal process. There might be more economies to be realized if the CDS bookstore was handled by the NSS Bookstore. This would probably allow the CDS to keep dues at the same or even a lower rate, and if UWS were published electronically (as is being discussed regarding NSS NEWS) the total cost of membership for a NSS-CDS member should be able to be lowered substantially. It is a shame that cost of membership is often cited as a reason that NSS and CDS members drop out. Thanks for taking the initiative to improve the CDS operating efficiency.
