Three types of memberships - Active, Life & Honourary Members.
Active Members are Jamaicans or of Jamaican heritage whose applications for Active Membership in the Corporation have been approved and accepted by the Board of Directors of the Corporation. They also have paid their annual dues on time. Only the Board of Directors of the Corporation may approve and accept all applications for Active Memberships in the Corporation.
Lifetime Members are Active Members who have demonstrated long time commitment to the Jamaica Association. They have been proposed and accepted by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors can approve one new lifetime membership per calendar year. Lifetime members do not need to pay annual dues.
Honourary Members are not Jamaicans or of Jamaican heritage but support the aims and objectives of the Association. They are invited by the Board of Directors to become Honourary members. Honourary membership is valid until and unless the Board decides to revoke it.
Applications for either type of membership must be submitted in writing on the established membership forms.
At the meeting of the Board of Directors held on Monday, November 13th, 2017 a motion was passed to adjust the membership year to that of the fiscal year. As such, membership now runs from October 1st - September 30th, and only those members whose dues have been paid prior to the end of the fiscal year will be eligible to vote at the corresponding Annual General Meeting and is to be applied retroactively for the 2016-2017 fiscal year and going forward.
