GET INVOLVED | Membership


GlobalJax members connect to a diverse network of individuals here and around the world.

Our members work in government, journalism, big business, small business, NGOs, medicine, and education. From students to retirees, they keep up with current world issues and actively seek opportunities to engage in globally minded discussion. They are interested in world travel, international cuisine, living abroad, and different cultures. They believe building relationships that cross borders is important not only for their personal well being but also for our community's economic future.

They also regularly meet with emerging world leaders gaining a firsthand glimpse into the stories behind international news headlines. Serving as Citizen Diplomats, our members influence global politics and economics by sharing our wonderful city with the world - greeting visitors upon arrival, accompanying visitors to professional meetings, showing visitors area attractions, and having them in their homes for dinner and meaningful discussion.

Members of GlobalJax are also automatically members of the Friendship Force International, receiving emails and having opportunities to join in advertised tours or exchanges around the world. Nonprofit Friendship Force and GlobalJax share "a desire to spread goodwill, to better understand people of other cultures, and to value one another as friends."
