Below, we have highlighted some key changes with how membership registration and payments will be dealt with in the future. If you have any further questions, please email Daniel Garel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payments and member renewals can now be taken automatically
No more manual invoices and yearly reminders from us to renew membership! With the new platform, you will have the option to pay by direct debit, meaning you will be notified before the membership renewal when your payment is taken. But unless you want to cancel, you won’t have to do anything. You can also pay by debit or credit card as a one-off, but reminders will be sent automatically before your membership runs out.
You can cancel your membership at any time
Memberships are renewed on a yearly basis, so if you decide to cancel your membership halfway through your term, then you will still have access to benefits until your membership runs out.
If you pay by direct debit, you can cancel this by logging into your membership account and then no further payments will be taken and your access to member benefits will end at the end of the year (from the date at which you signed up). If you pay by debit or credit card then you can cancel or change payment details through the member’s portal.
You can update your details whenever you or your organisation needs to
For larger organisations, you can share your membership plan with multiple members of staff
This is very important feature for organisation members – you can add multiple people to your membership by logging into our members area. This will mean multiple people in your organisation can get access to member benefits and communication.
When we expand to getting our member resource hub later in the year, this means you will be able to share access to this information and be included on member only member mailing lists. This can be done via our membership portal.
The process has been simplified for new members
Gone are the days when you had to write paragraphs in order to become a member. Now the process is simple. Just select the type of membership that best suits you, fill in your name, email, address and if applicable, the name of the organisation you’re applying for, and you can pay the membership fee immediately. Once the payment has been processed, you’re officially a member of JPN and following that, you can add more details to your profile and we will follow up with more detailed information about the organisation and current opportunities in due course. The only requirement is that you work either as a performing artist or as part of an organisation or endeavour which focusses on jazz and improvised music.
