Member Rates

Our membership year starts October 1 and ends September 30. Our dues are not pro-rated. Dues paid after July 1 will be applied to the following year. Please see our payment options.

Your membership is important to us. If you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to afford your membership dues, please contact our Treasurer, Holly Zimmerman at [email protected] or our President, Kathy Bloomfield at [email protected] to discuss your circumstances. We will do everything possible to make sure you remain a part of our AJL family.
