While most of our members are from the Eastern states, we have members from across the country. All members of the Executive Committee, Board of Directors and Honorary Board are dues paying members of the organization and volunteer their time to:
- Organize an annual training conference;
- Ensure effective implementation of federal and state family support laws;
- Recommend changes to family support legislation and regulations;
- Improve communication and cooperation between states to enhance interstate case processing.

Become a Member
There are two ways you can become a member or renew your existing membership in ERICSA. One, by attending the annual conference which enrolls (or renews) you as a member until the next annual conference. Or two, if you are unable to attend the conference there is an online form which requires a $25 payment. Both methods entitle you to all the member benefits.
Policy & Legislation
ERICSA is instrumental in improving policies, procedures, practices, laws and regulations that deal with all aspects of child support. In keeping with its name, ERICSA seeks to focus special attention on the interstate aspects of child support enforcement through the program support and policy work the Association provides year-round.
A special shout-out to our amazing sponsors who help us to continue providing valuable resources to our child support professionals.
