AAJA Philadelphia events are open to the public and you do not need to be an AAJA member to participate. However, by joining AAJA, your dues will help support both our local chapter and the national organization, and you will receive access to members-only benefits.

AAJA membership lasts for one year after your join date. A basic professional membership is $65 per year, while a student membership is $25 per year. Additional levels of membership are available — to join online, learn more about member benefits or renew your membership, click here.

To sign up for membership using a paper membership form, or to request a reduced member fees application (for recently unemployed members or those undergoing financial hardship), please email
