Note:  Email addresses are collected for JASNA use only.


  Membership Level

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

Note to Canadians: You may enroll in a Canadian Individual Annual or Student Annual Membership using this form. However, Canadian Sustaining Membership and Life Memberships are not available online. Please visit JASNA's membership web page for dues information and a form you may print and mail to the Canadian Membership Secretary.

Notes on Membership Levels:
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) International memberships are for members with addresses outside the United States and Canada.
3) Sustaining Membership provides the same benefits as Individual Annual Membership. The extra dues are a donation to JASNA, and a tax receipt will be provided for U.S. and Canadian residents.
4) Family Life Memberships are for two (2) members at the same address. The household receives one copy of any printed material. If you select "Family Life Membership," you will be guided through the process of completing two forms: one for you as the primary member and one for your second family member. To set up the membership correctly, you must complete the second form as part of this transaction before you pay for the membership. Step 1: Select "Family Life Membership," complete the form, and click the Submit button. Step 2: A new page titled "Membership Application" will display. Click the button on the left marked Add Another Household Member. Step 3: A new form will be displayed; fill in the information for your second family member, then click the Continue button to proceed to the Payment screen.
