As we get ready for those holidays, we need you to encourage your students to continue to collect their data and write their papers. Hopefully, at this time, you have reviewed the Handbook and understand any revisions that have been made. If you still have questions, then do not hesitate to contact us since we are here to help you.
This purpose of this Sponsor Update is to stress VJAS Membership Applications and Membership Fees. We are encouraging one and all to submit their Membership Applications early. Over the past several years, many schools waited until the paper submissions deadline to send in their memberships. We hope that for 2014-2015 you will submit your School’s Membership Application and Membership Fee by the January 15, 2015 deadline. This will ensure that you are kept in the loop since we will have your school’s current contact information.
Please realize that the Membership Application registers you with VJAS. There are both School and Individual Membership Applications and Fees. You can find the details located in your Handbook as well as the Membership Applications found in Appendix B which are downloadable using the link in the “For Teachers” section of the website. There are separate forms for School Membership and Individual Membership (for those students who attend schools that do not join VJAS this year and for home schooled students).
In summary, we are asking for a completed Application Form from each School Member or Individual Member and a membership fee of $50 per School Member or $10 per Individual Member.
