Membership Dues and Structure

Membership in the Content Delivery and Security Association covers your entire company, not just one person or one department. You must designate one person as the “primary contact” at your company – usually it is the highest level executive, such as the President or CEO – but you are not limited to the number of people who can enroll in CDSA from your company (another great reason to join!).

Your annual dues amount is based on your company’s gross annual revenue in recording media manufacturing or related activities. Dues are payable upon application submission and upon annual renewal.

$2.5 to $7.5 million $2,100

$15 to $25 million $5,600
