Our members agree that they get much more value from their memberships if they participate in CASI activities.
For example, you can:
Time is a commodity that seems to grow more scarce by the day. Involvement in CASI will require you to invest some time, and you may ask: “Will it be worth it?” The time you invest in CASI activities will pay a variety of dividends — increased knowledge, a wider network of contacts, personal and professional recognition, and the opportunity to contribute to your industry.
Your participation in CASI will benefit your career and enrich your life.
Joining the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute is your fast track to:
CASI is a non-profit scientific and technical organization for people interested in aeronautics and space. Among its many benefits, CASI provides an international network of contacts and access to a wealth of technical and professional information.
CASI Members also enjoy full access to our electronic publications: the Canadian Aeronautics & Space Journal, and the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing.
CASI is structured to reflect your interests. When you join CASI you may choose to affiliate with one of our special interest Sections:
Each member may join one of the CASI Branches located in major cities across Canada. Some Branches are hosted by universities or colleges and cater particularly to the needs of students. If there is no CASI Branch near you, you can choose one of our "virtual" Branches - Atlantic Canada or Western Canada.
While Branch activities vary, each has a program of regular meetings, invited speakers, site visits and social events. These Branch meetings provide an excellent opportunity for professional development and networking.
CASI holds workshops, conferences and symposia each year that draw delegates from Canada and around the world. These events offer members a way to stay in touch with each other and with leading developments in their fields of interest, while focusing a spotlight on the achievements of the event participants and their organizations.
All CASI events seek to maximize participation by students – by keeping registration fees as low as possible, providing special student programs, and by offering student volunteers a role in the organization of the event.
As a member of CASI you will have access to both peer-review scientific electronic journals we publish: CASJ and CJRS.
The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal (CASJ) has been continuously published for over 50 years and covers a wide range of aerospace-related topics. The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing (CJRS) is one of the top journals of its kind in the world, and is listed in the Science Citation Index.
Members also receive the CASI Clipper, an electronic newsletter that informs our members and corporate partners about what is going in the aeronautics, space, and remote sensing communities. It also provides frequent updates regarding CASI conferences, events, Branch meetings and other activities.
CASI is an association of professionals and membership is graded to reflect career progression, from Junior Member to Fellow.
CASI confers awards each year to recognize achievement in a variety of disciplines including aviation and air operations, engineering research and development, leadership in policy making and planning, and space endeavours. CASI also awards two scholarships each year to outstanding university students.
Presenting papers at CASI conferences, delivering programs at Branch meetings, and serving on CASI committees are other ways your membership in CASI will bring you professional and personal recognition.
