I dont think they'll bounce you for not being a member lol
When I first joined Jersey Shore Aquarium Society, they said that you can stay this meet and decide if you want to become a member or not.
I have bought new member with me to the meeting and never seen anyone being bounced :P

I would love to join NJAS, but Im down in matawan can't find a ride there.

Here is their group on facebook, should be helpful :P

Good group. Very nice people....I was a member for a year but I haven't renewed.
I would but the monthly meetings are tough to get to for me but I do hit their auctions.

There is a lot of overlap amongst members between NJAS and BCAS and DCAS, etc....I'm a member of BCAS and PA Cichlids, etc...

They should let you attend at least one or two meetings as a "prospective" new member

You may certainly attend a meeting and join that same day. No problem with that. I have been a member off and on. I too have a conflict on meeting nights, so I would miss most of the meetings.

I am a member of all of those, I believe. Friendly groups of hobbyists! NJAS has a few SUPER heavy hitters in its membership, includign Rosario LaCorte and Dr Paul Loiselle. Definitely worth joining They are a super fun group, and I wish I could make more meetings.

The meeting in July, the last one, was very fun. Beginners luck maybe: I won the raffle, winning me a 10 gallon brackish setup with a cute crab, some mollies, and two gobies.

Hello Luky,I am a member of NJAS and yes you can attend and just check out a meeting without being a member.If you have any questions just send me a PM or I can introduce you to members at the meeting that can help you get started with membership.
This months meeting I am planning on bringing a large assortment of plants for the auction,most of them uncommon and hard to find at local pet shops
