Notes about membership

Thank you for your interest in being part of the SJAA! Please know that your new or renewing membership will be provisional, until the board of directors votes to formally approve your membership at the next board meeting, per the club's by-laws. All benefits of membership, at the discretion of the board, are in effect during the provisional membership period.

Your membership will be for a one year period, ending one year after the end of the month you join (eg, if you join on 15 June 2015, your membership expires on 30 June 2016).

Please answer a few questions about your interests in astronomy so we can continue to tailor our programs to suit the needs of our members.
