Any person interested in the affairs of the Corporation or the California grand jury system shall be eligible for associate membership if a member in good standing recommends that the person be granted associate membership. The sponsor will provide an application form to the applicant acquiring the form from the membership Relations Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once approved, associate members must pay dues which are the same as for a voting member. Associate members may serve on committees. Associate members have no vote in association affairs and may not accredit their relationship with the association.

Volunteer Interest Form:
CGJA is an all-volunteer organization. We succeed mainly because our members volunteer to serve on our committees and/or train grand jurors.
