Membership Categories



KASA is excited to announce new membership levels for 2018-19, designed to address school leaders' specific and changing needs, while providing more choices, and bringing alignment to KASA's offerings.  In addition to the new levels, we have renamed some existing membership levels to accurately reflect members today.

As you consider your membership investment for 2018-19, you have the option of retaining your current professional membership level (previously called active) or selecting professional lifetime, premier, or premier lifetime, which offer more legal services support and rewards.
