ISJAC has developed a unique approach to membership – one which not only best helps us involve and serve our community, but also creates crucial, long-lasting partnerships with leading institutions who share a commitment with our mission.

The main tenets of our plan are:

1)  Provide an individual “membership” plan that is FREE and OPEN to all. This allows us to reach, involve, and excite a much larger body of interested individuals (professionals, students, and music lovers) than if we had even a “nominal” membership fee.

2)  Create a Consortium of Member Colleges and Universities that are eager to promote the mission of ISJAC by potentially being involved in programmatic offerings and by offering guidance and support as the Society continues to evolve.

3) Use the power of this combined community to attract grants, sponsorships, and foundation support.

 

INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP

Individual membership is FREE and OPEN to all. Join now. Since it is expensive to run programs and events, ISJAC welcomes any and all continuing and one-time donations. Please give what is best for you. Recurring monthly donations of as little as $5 (less than a couple cups of coffee per month) go a long way in helping us accomplish our mission.
