Frequently asked questions


How do I become a member?

To become a Member you must complete a membership application and pay the annual dues fee. Applications are available at the Saint James City Civic Association (SJCCA) and on our website You will be issued an annual Membership Card to verify your active member status. Bring your membership card with you to activities and events held at the SJCCA. If you apply and pay your dues at the SJCCA, you will be issued a membership card. In the event you do not receive your card at that time, check back with us to pick up your card at a later date.

Where is my Membership Card?

If you apply and pay your annual dues for membership at the SJCCA you should receive your membership card at that time. If you mailed in your application and payment or dropped it off at the SJCCA office, your membership card will be held for you at the SJCCA. Ask an Activity Leader or Board Member for assistance.

Can I attend an activity to decide whether or not I want to become a member?

Yes! Please feel free to "drop in" and see if an activity fits you before becoming a member. If you join, members are charged a "co-pay" of $2 per class/activity and non-members (who attend with a member) are charged a "co-pay" of $4 per class/activity. (Some activities may cost more - e.g. Golden Brush Workshops)


How can I receive a Newsletter? Do I have to be a member?

Our monthly Newsletters and occasional Bulletins are sent by email to all active members who provide us with a valid email address. If your email address was included on your annual membership application, you should begin to receive our Newsletters. If you do not begin to receive Newsletter emails, please check your spam folder and adjust your setting to allow our notifications. Contact us if to verify that we have your correct email address or inform us of any changes. If you are not a member or do not provide us with a valid email address, a copy of all Newsletters and Bulletins are posted on our website under the "Newsletters" tab. We also try to have several copies on hand at the civic center for those without internet access. Ask an activity leader for help.
