The yearly fee

One year of membership runs from January 1st to December 31th.

We have three types of memberships: 

  1. Individual or institute. This is the regular membership that gives full access to the SJA member benefits. The fee is €75,- per year (in the Netherlands)/€85,- per year (outside the Netherlands, due to the extra shippings costs for Andon).
  2. Partner. This membership is for a partner who lives at the same address as a regular member. Partner members enjoy the same benefits as regular members, with the exception of the hard copy of Andon. Invoices are sent to the regular member. The fee for the Partner membership is €25,- per year.
  3. Student. With a scan of a recent student ID, students can apply for the Student membership with a reduced fee of €40,- per year. Student members enjoy the same benefits as regular members.
