Dues are $85 if paid by September 1 and $100 if paid after that date. This fee subsidizes JAFTY programming, buys you a T-shirt, and pays NFTY dues. You must be a JAFTY member to attend regional events or serve on JAFTY’s board. Please turn this into the office along with the Health and Safety Authorization.
Non-members are welcome to attend JAFTY events, but may pay higher fees at individual events.
Health and Safety Authorization
This form requires signatures from both the JAFTY-ite and a parent or guardian. Rabbi Cohen or Stefanie Levine will sign your forms.
More information about the H&S Authorization can be found here: http://www.nfty.org/sar/events/hsform/
Appointed Board Application
JAFTY’s board is made up of Executive Board members, who are elected by JAFTY-ites each year, and Appointed Board members, which are appointed by the Executive Board. Appointed members attend regular board meetings, take responsibility for an area or activity, and give their input and assistance to the elected Executive board. This is a great way for anyone to get involved in JAFTY, particularly rising freshmen who were ineligible to run for Exec, or anyone passionate about a particular part of JAFTY.
Applications will be accepted until September 20, 2016.
Appointed board positions and job descriptions are listed on the application (Secretary, Songleader, Grade Reps, Programming Assoc, Fundraising Assoc, Historian, Publicist, etc).
If you’re interested in an Appointed Board position, fill out the application and attach a short letter (less than a page) describing your qualifications and any ideas you have relating to the position. Please note the letter of intent MUST be emailed to me as well. Rabbi Cohen or I will sign your application when we receive it. The Executive Board will review the applications and vote on appointments, with 50% plus 1 required to confirm.
