Current Members | Membership in JASNA-GCR

Effective June 2017, JASNA, our parent organization, has elected that regional chapters like JASNA-GCR may no longer charge separate membership dues. We recognize that yearly dues to two JASNA entities could be confusing and, as always, we strongly encourage our members to join our National organization. 

Regional chapters like JASNA-GCR are permitted to accept donations, and we encourage you to keep us in mind when you are considering charitable giving. Your support enables us to present an array of programs and events for your enjoyment and enlightenment, and to foster a love and knowledge of Jane Austen's work and world throughout the Greater Chicago area. Thank you!


If you are interested in volunteering for an event, joining a planning committee, or contributing in any way, please contact the Regional Coordinator at .

JASNA-GCR also welcomes financial gifts to support our ongoing programs and outreach.  If you would like to make a donation to JASNA-GCR, please contact the Membership Secretary at
