Membership Benefits

Joining TeSPA is easy! Whether you are student looking to find a local group, or a group looking to become a TeSPA chapter, TeSPA can help you “level up” your community. To join TeSPA, there are only two requirements.

  • First, your group must be game agnostic, meaning you are open to building an inclusive community for all gamers.
  • Second, student members must pay annual dues of $10 each academic year.
As your group grows, you unlock Membership Benefits! There are two types of benefits: individual benefits which each member receives, and group benefits. What are you waiting for? Apply to join as a Local Chapter or Search for your Chapter.
