Contact Information


Note:  Email addresses are collected for JASNA use only.

Membership Level

Select your level of membership.  All dues are shown in US dollars.

 Note to Canadians: You may enroll in a Canadian Individual Annual or Student Annual Membership using this form. However, Canadian Sustaining Membership and Life Memberships are not available online. Please visit JASNA's membership web page for dues information and a form you may print and mail to the Canadian Membership Secretary.

Notes on Membership Levels:
1) Annual Memberships start on the date you enroll online and expire one year later. We will remind you by email when it’s time to renew so that you can continue your membership without interruption.
2) International memberships are for members with addresses outside the United States and Canada.
3) Sustaining Membership provides the same benefits as Individual Annual Membership. The extra dues are a donation to JASNA, and a tax receipt will be provided for U.S. and Canadian residents.
4) Family Life Memberships are for two (2) members at the same address. The household receives one copy of any printed material. If you select "Family Life Membership," you will be guided through the process of completing two forms: one for you as the primary member and one for your second family member. To set up the membership correctly, you must complete the second form as part of this transaction before you pay for the membership. Step 1: Select "Family Life Membership," complete the form, and click the Submit button. Step 2: A new page titled "Membership Application" will display. Click the button on the left marked Add Another Household Member. Step 3: A new form will be displayed; fill in the information for your second family member, then click the Continue button to proceed to the Payment screen.

Your Preferences

Help us serve you better by indicating your email, publication, and Region preferences below.

1.  JASNA Email List Sign-Up

To keep up with the latest news about JASNA and Jane Austen, join the JASNA Email List to receive our monthly JASNA Update e-bulletin and occasional alerts and announcements. You can also opt in to receive updates about the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Note:  Even if you do not join the JASNA Email List, you will receive occasional administrative communications from JASNA by email, such as online registration and payment confirmation emails, password reset emails, renewal notices, or other service messages notifying you of matters that may affect your membership.

2.  Annual General Meeting Registration Brochure

All conference information is posted on JASNA's website before online registration begins, including a digital brochure (PDF).  However, you may receive a paper brochure and registration form by mail if you indicate that preference below.

Important:  If you choose not to receive a paper AGM registration brochure but do want to be notified when online conference registration is about to begin, you must take the proactive step of joining the JASNA Email List (see above). Select "JASNA Email & AGM Updates" in the Email Preferences dropdown menu.

As a JASNA member you may join in the activities organized by our Regional groups in the U.S. and Canada. To receive information about Regional events in your area, either select the Region you want to join from the dropdown menu below or skip this section and let the Membership Secretary assign you to the closest Region within a 2-hour radius of your address (if there is one).  Note: You can change your Region affiliation(s) at any time in the JASNA Member Portal.  

A directory of JASNA’s Regional Groups is available on the JASNA website.
