concept of the Associate member was formed in the early 1980’s as a result of
an overwhelming desire amongst members who had graduated out of Jack and Jill
to have an opportunity to give back to the organization. The National
leadership and membership agreed to investigate a way to formalize and
accommodate this desire. As a result, the membership category ‘Associate’ was
purpose of Associate Membership is to allow tenured mothers an opportunity to
continue to support our organization by supporting their local chapter and the
Jack and Jill of America Foundation. This membership category strengthens our
organization by addressing the unique needs of Jack and Jill by embracing the
institutional knowledge and wisdom of our tenured members.
Jackson MS Associates work toward being a positive and supportive body that
aids the Mother’s Chapter in fulfilling their goals and programs by offering
expertise and prior knowledge. We will thank and honor them for their advisement and expertise on how to carry out that what is
necessary to make activities and programs successful.
