METAA is the Massachusetts CoSN chapter. Because of this powerful national affiliation you have some choices about how you join our organization. You may join METAA alone or METAA + CoSN. You may also register below to indicate interest in staying informed about METAA without joining our organization yet.
COST: example – Small district is $440 (see reg form for other size districts)
To join both organizations and to reap the benefits at the state and national level, you must join CoSN at the INSTITUTIONAL level. Below is a link to COSN registration form. Please note that state chapter dues are included only if you become an institutional member, but not if you become an individual member.
Cost of membership is calculated on the size of your organization. For example, if you have under 2500 students, annual membership for METAA + CoSN costs $440. If you already have individual CoSN membership, you will want to join METAA only ~ see OPTION 2.
To join METAA alone, choose this option. You will receive all the benefits that METAA has to offer including a mentor program, advocacy at the state level, professional development specifically for technology administrators, and more. The annual membership cost is only $150.
