Please note that registering for GGSA does not automatically make you a member of CHSSA or the National Speech & Debate Association (NSDA).
To register for CHSSA, please follow the three steps outlined in the following link: https://chssa.org/registration/ Please follow the three step process in the link below to renew your CHSSA membership.
