This discount does not apply to renewals — a discount for renewals was offered earlier in 2015.

Those who join before Dec 31 — including renewalsbefore Dec 31, 2015 can get the JJA’s pre-registration discount for Jazz Connect (Jan 14-15, NYC) and post their 2015 Best (or Worst) lists here at JJANews.

Currently comprising some 200 members and a much larger contact list of writers, editors, photographers, broadcasters, publishers, videographers, new media professionals and innovators, musicians, publicists, presenters, educational institutions, non-profits, community groups, corporate institutions and devoted listeners all involved in the flow of news and views of jazz, the JJA seeks members of every age and background who will benefit from strengthening their own networks, streams and platforms through mutual affiliation.

JJA dues are usually tax-deductible (ask your accountant); dues paid in 2015 would be 2015 write-offs.
