PL\SQL Search for rows with month

Hello experts,

Have a table in Oracle DB called CCM.CCM_ASSOCIATION
with field ASSOCIATION_EXPIRE_DATE.
the data looks like

24-APR-12 04.16.51.723000000 PM
19-JUN-12 12.00.00.000000000 AM
29-JUL-10 12.00.00.000000000 AM
30-MAY-12 12.00.00.000000000 AM
13-JAN-14 01.47.34.052000000 PM
07-MAY-12 12.00.00.000000000 AM
13-JAN-14 12.00.00.000000000 AM

Would like to see all the rows that
have are in the  month of JAN
.
SELECT ASSOCIATION_EXPIRE_DATE FROM CCM.CCM_ASSOCIATION
where month = JAN

I know this is not right. Have searched for an hour
for syntax. There are lots of queries for extracting
a month from a date but can't find anything
for extracting rows withj certain month or year.

Thanks.

What is the data type of the column?  

If date: where to_char(ASSOCIATION_EXPIRE_DATE,'MON')='JAN'
If varchar2:  ASSOCIATION_EXPIRE_DATE like '%JAN%'
