You can also join by calling (212) 333-1240. JA dues are $675 for an individual and $1,080 for a couple. Additionally, JAs are required to purchase a base MoMA membership. Individual JAs must have a base Individual MoMA membership ($85) or higher, and Dual JAs must have a base Dual MoMA membership ($140) or higher.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q3">Can I bring a guest to events?</h3> <p>In general, Junior Associates events are for JA members only, and we cannot accommodate guests. However, if you are a Dual JA, we can accommodate your guest at events as long as you RSVP for both you and your guest and receive confirmations for both registrants.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q4">How does Dual membership work?</h3> <p>This membership gives you the same benefits as an Individual JA membership, times two! You can become Dual JAs for the pro-rated amount $1,220, which includes a required minimum Dual Museum membership of $140. Dual memberships can be for two people who share the same mailing address or for an individual who would like to be able to bring a guest to JA events.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q5">What is the tax deductibility of my membership dues?</h3> <p>For an Individual JA membership of $760, the tax-deductible amount is $394. For a Dual JA membership of $1,220, it is $608.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q6">What if I’m already a MoMA member?</h3> <p>Then let us know, and you will only have to pay Junior Associates dues; $675 for Individual and $1,080 for Dual.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q7">What’s the difference between an affiliate Museum group, such as The Junior Associates, and a membership level?</h3> <p>A membership level is a category of giving to MoMA rather than a cohesive group. Museum affiliates, on the other hand, are auxiliary groups that support and are supported by the Museum and participate collectively in a schedule of group-exclusive events. To be a member of an affiliate group, you must be a member of the Museum. Every affiliate group has different membership requirements, but please know that as a Junior Associate, you must join at least as an Individual or Dual member, depending on your Junior Associate category. One common misconception is that because Individual JA dues are $675, then a Junior Associate membership is similar to the Supporting Museum membership category ($600); however, while JAs receive many of the same benefits, their category of membership is technically “Individual,” unless a JA chooses to join at a higher level.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q8">Who are the members of The Junior Associates?</h3> <p>Our members come from a variety of professions, backgrounds, and experiences.

Some are avid collectors while others are learning about modern contemporary art for the first time. </p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q9">Is there a dress code?</h3> <p>No. However, many members come to events from work and wear business or business-casual attire.</p> <p class="jump"><a href="#top">Return to top</a></p> <h3 class="faqhd" id="q10">How often do events take place?</h3> <p>We generally host about one event per week, typically on a weeknight, and plan the occasional Saturday event, tour, or day trip.
