This category of membership has been established to protect Organizational Partners from any conflict that may arise between InJAC efforts/resolutions and the interests of their employer. This situation will occur most frequently when the organization, specifically, a state agency, is unwilling or unable to have formal voting rights in the organization or on a specific issue.
Organizational Partners must serve on at least one committee and are eligible to serve as committee chairs and vote on committee decisions, except those involving approval of resolutions. InJAC Organizational Partners will not have voting privileges on general InJAC activities, functions, and resolutions.

Individual MembersAny individual may apply to join InJAC as an Individual Member. Individual Members must serve on at least one committee. Individual Members will have full membership rights. Employees or representatives of Organizational Members and Organizational Partners may join as Individual Members if there is interest as an individual beyond the role of an Organizational Partner. This would enable the individual to represent his/her own interests in InJAC.
