Membership Types

We have four types of membership: corporate, individual, affiliate, and student. We define corporate supporter membership as a company signing on to become a corporate supporter and thereby providing all their trust and safety employees with TSPA membership. Individual membership is for current trust and safety practitioners who are currently practicing or, if they are not currently employed, planning on finding their next job in trust and safety (former trust and safety practitioners, who are currently working in roles outside of trust and safety, are not qualified to join as members). Affiliate membership is for individuals who work in civil society, academia, or nongovernmental organizations, whose work or research directly relates to trust and safety. Current students who aspire to work in trust and safety upon graduation may apply for a student membership, which is a discounted form of affiliate membership. Read more about each membership type to learn which is best for you.

How to Apply 

To join TSPA, you need to fill out a membership application form. After we receive your application form, we will review it to make sure you qualify as a member for TSPA. After your application is approved, we will send you your member log-in information to finish filling out your member profile and to pay your dues. Once payment is received, you will be able to access your membership benefits. 

Individual and affiliate membership dues are $250 a year and corporate membership is paid through your employer. Because trust and safety professionals work all over the world, we set our membership dues on a sliding scale to make membership accessible to every qualifying professional. Discounts are applied based on where you live and work. Discounts are also applied if you are a student. 

Membership dues and discounts are explained further here.
