Upon joining, all members must digitally sign a membership agreement. Membership levels and dues will be outlined on your agreement along with your contact information and a list of sub members (if applicable). A copy of the membership agreement template is provided below for your convenience.
I authorize the Jewish Community Center to receive payments for my membership dues by drafting monthly either a debit/credit card or bank account for the above-mentioned monthly dues. This authorization will remain in effect until my membership is cancelled (see cancellation policy below).
Membership dues may be paid in full or on a month-to-month basis. Annual memberships are automatically renewed on your anniversary join date and monthly memberships are automatically renewed on the fifteenth of each month. Membership dues are evaluated annually at the beginning of each calendar year and subject to change. Louisiana sales tax will be assessed on dues when applicable, as required by law. Membership and membership dues are non-refundable and non-transferable. A joining fee is required at the time of sign-up, of which twenty-five percent is designated to the JCC building fund. Thereafter, if applicable, a twenty-five dollar building assessment fee will be billed annually. For those paying by monthly draft, this assessment will be a separate monthly charge.
Membership is a minimum of one month plus 30-days to cancel. To cancel a membership, a thirty-day written notice must be given prior to the fifteenth of the month for which you want to cancel. For example, if you want to cancel as of June 15, written cancellation must be received by May 15. A rejoining fee will be required for all previously cancelled JCC members.
