Membership Dues

Membership dues are based on income.  They are designed to ensure that ASSJ membership is accessible to all people regardless of socio-economic status.
Membership dues are a significant portion of ASSJ's resources.  ASSJ relies on members to select the dues level that accurately reflects their income.

Membership Renewal

Members will receive email notification about two months before your current membership term ends along with instructions on the renewal process. Memberships may be renewed as of January 1 following the member's expiration date, which will always be on December 31 of the final membership year.
When membership is renewed, a term of one, two or three calendar years may be selected.
