  Membership Level Selection

Select your level of membership.  All dues are shown in US dollars.

Individual Annual and Life Memberships are available in two versions: one with printed publications and one with digital publications only. Student Annual Membership is only available with digital publications.

Canadians: You may enroll in a Canadian Individual or Student Annual Membership online using this form; your credit card transaction will be processed in US dollars for the amount shown. Applications for Life Membership must be mailed to the Canadian Membership Secretary with a check payable in Canadian dollars. Please visit JASNA's membership webpage for dues information and a form you can print and mail. 

1) Annual Memberships start on the date you enroll online and expire one year later. We will remind you by email when it’s time to renew so that you can continue your membership without interruption.

2) Student Annual Membership – 250th Birthday Offer: Between March 1, 2024, and December 31, 2025, Student Membership is available free of charge to students currently enrolled in a course of study leading to a high school diploma, college/university degree, trade or professional license or certificate, or equivalents of these. Applicants must indicate their current course of study at the bottom of this form.
3) International memberships are for members with addresses outside the United States and Canada.
4) Digital Memberships: If you select a Digital membership, you will not receive printed copies of JASNA’s publications; we will notify you by email when the digital version of a publication is available to download. Memberships remain in effect for the full membership period and cannot be "upgraded" to include printed publications during that membership term. Changes can be made when a membership is renewed.
