WJC Membership Application

After reviewing the material on this page and the West Jersey Chapter By-laws, print out the current membership application, complete it, and mail it along with your payment (check or money order) to the address indicated on the form. Optionally, you may bring the completed application to a West Jersey Chapter meeting or to a show where West Jersey Chapter maintains a sales table. Payment in full must accompany the application. All applicants must be affirmed by the West Jersey Chapter Board of Directors before membership can take effect.

NRHS Membership

Starting in 2015, the annual NRHS dues will be collected separately from West Jersey Chapter dues. You will need to register with both the NRHS and West Jersey Chapter, and remit to both organizations separately. You must apply for membership to the NRHS through the NRHS’ website.
