A note on the process: Each application receives thoughtful consideration by our Membership Committee. In addition, general information about each applicant will be shared with our current membership, a process that ensures adherence to high qualification standards. The entire process may take up to six weeks and we greatly appreciate your patience.
All applications must be sent electronically. To submit clips or credits that are not available online, please so specify in the online application and e-mail your clips in PDF form to membership--at--asja.org in PDF format.
