* Family membership: two (2) persons at the same address, each of whom is a member; the household receives one subscription to JASNA News and Persuasions.
** Sustaining membership: same benefits as Individual membership; the extra dues are a donation to JASNA, for which a tax receipt will be provided.
*** A Life Member may convert to Family Life by adding another person at the same address.

The membership year begins September 1 and ends August 31.  Members who join before June 1 will receive the current year’s edition of Persuasions.  Members who join between June 1 and August 31 will be enrolled for the following full membership year that starts September 1.

JASNA’s Membership Secretaries are volunteers.  New member information is usually mailed four to six weeks after receipt of the membership form and dues.
