How to Join the JALT Global Issues SIG

JALT members may join as many SIGs as they wish at a cost of 1,500 yen each per year. JALT members who already belong to one or more SIGs are welcome to join the Global Issues SIG as well.

This can be done by using the yubin furikae postal transfer form inserted at the back of each issue of JALT's monthly magazine The Language Teacher. Just fill out this form and take it to the nearest post office with your payment. Once this is received by the JALT Central Office, your application will be processed and your name added to the Global Issues SIG membership list.

You can also join our SIG by signing up at local or national JALT events. To maintain SIG privileges, please renew your SIG memberships when you renew your JALT membership.
