Benefits of CCOSA Membership
What Benefits do I get from CCOSA Membership?
CCOSA urges our members to renew and invites non-members to join one of CCOSA's constituent associations: OASA, OASSP, OAESP, ODSS, or OMLEA. In addition, we invite all retired members to continue with the association via OARSA.
Membership continues to grow. The potential is nearly 3,000 administrators. In addition, there are hundreds of professional educators and classified personnel who are eligible to join CCOSA as associate members. Each potential member is of vital importance to CCOSA, both as a voice within the association and as a competent ally in facing the challenges in education.
No other group in education faces the pressures and responsibilities that administrators do; we need the assurance of a strong and viable state organization. Each member deserves the support and assistance necessary to carry on the tasks of education for the ultimate benefit of students in our schools. CCOSA creates a forum for a powerful, collective voice on issues that are critical to Oklahoma schools, educators, and students.

Payroll Deduction for Membership Dues
“You may be aware of recent passage of HB 1749 which prohibits payroll deductions for membership dues in any organization that "on or after November 1, 2015, collectively bargains on behalf of its membership pursuant to any provision of federal law." CCOSA does not collectively bargain on behalf of our membership pursuant to any provision of federal law. Therefore, HB 1749 does NOT apply to CCOSA and our members are entitled to continue having membership dues payroll deducted and transmitted to our organization.”
