  • Discounted registration for JWHA’s annual conference.
  • Full voting rights at JWHA business meetings.

Note: the online membership form is currently unavailable as it is being revised. Please check back after October 15, 2017 to join or renew membership in JWHA. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

Membership is open to anyone interested in Community of Christ history, early Mormon history, or the history of the many denominations that comprise the Latter Day Saint movement.

Have You Renewed Your Membership?

Membership runs from January to December. Unless otherwise noted, dues received at any time during a calendar year are for the current year only (unless a membership is current, then dues will apply to the following year).

JWHA also offers a digital only e-membership.

Please consider renewing as a Sustaining member or Patron level. You might also consider a Lifetime membership. Your extra contribution to JWHA helps us fund student scholarships and other special projects, and makes a big difference in helping JWHA advance its mission. Because JWHA is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, part of your contribution at levels beyond regular membership may be tax deductible. Consult your tax preparer. JWHA does not give tax advice.

Sept 12, 2017 update: We have temporarily disabled the online membership form today due to a high volume of spam hitting the JWHA website. We hope to have this issue resolved promptly. In the meantime, please contact Cheryle with your questions about membership.
If you suspect any illegal, unethical or inappropriate events, behavior or practices please contact the Finance Chair.  All reports will be dealt with in confidence.
