California Staffing Professionals (CSP) is a non-profit membership organization which provides products and services to its members within the staffing services industry.
To provide ongoing and current education and accreditation to meet the continuing needs of the CSP membership
To promote and maintain high standards of services and business integrity through the dissemination, application and enforcement of the CSP Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Responsibility
To represent the Staffing Industry by exerting collective influence in matters of mutual concern and by advocating beneficial legislation
To raise the visibility of CSP to employer clients and the public as a reliable source of information and thereby increase their understanding of the role of the staffing professional
In accordance with democratic principles, the membership is always the final authority in all decisions of the association. Major policy decisions are made by mailed ballots or at a meeting scheduled as part of the annual state convention. The membership also elects officers and a board of directors representing local chapters to act on behalf of the association. The CSP Board of Directors meets quarterly and is empowered to transact CSP business in accordance with the CSP Bylaws and Standing Rules of Order. The Board of Directors carries out its responsibilities through standing and special committees.
The programs of the state association are intended for implementation by the individual member at the local level. For this reason, CSP is geographically divided into local chapters. Each chapter is represented at the state level by their elected directors to the CSP Board of Directors. Chapters also have their own officers, bylaws, board of directors and local committees.
Chapter meetings, programs and community-related activities are critical to the achievement of CSP’s stated objectives. It is here that members, while they may be competitors in the marketplace, meet to exchange ideas, share common interests and work to promote industry goals.
CSP is committed to furthering the interests of the staffing services industry, not only in California, but throughout the nation. To this end, CSP, NAPS (National Association of Personnel Services) and ASA (American Staffing Association) reciprocate communications and join forces on projects.
