Section Memebrship
New GSA membership options allow you to be a member of more than one Section. So if you were a member of one of the North American Sections, you can choose to continue that membership and add an International Section membership. If you have been previously unaffiliated with a geographic Section, you can join the International Section at no cost. Everyone gets one free Section membership - additional affiliations cost US$2.
