**** A Life Member may convert to Family Life by adding another person at the same address.

USA and International dues are payable in US dollars; Canadian dues are payable in Canadian dollars.

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 as well as any back issues of JASNA News that might have been missed, as long as supplies last.  Members who join between June 1 and August 31 will receive the summer issue of JASNA News but will otherwise 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.  For further questions on membership, please call 1-800-836-3911 or email the US/International Membership Secretary, Carole Stokes, carolestokes@cableone.net or the Canadian Membership Secretary, Nancy Stokes, naristo@rogers.com
