The JMA stands for the Junior Members Association, and it technically contains all Fitz students. It is run by the JMA Executive Trustees Committee (JMAETC): a committee of Fellows that presides over the assets of the JMA. This committee allocates these funds to the JCR, the MCR and the JMA Clubs and Societies (represented at the JMAETC meetings by the President of Clubs & Societies). The JMAETC also regulates the activity of each of these bodies in accordance with the JMA Constitution and other College policies.
