As we’re getting into the swing of fall semester, now is a good time to renew your annual membership so you’re ready for all the wonderful activities we have planned this year. An active membership ensures that you receive the discounted conference rate- a savings
of $35! Attending the conference allows you to interact with the 359 regular members, 3 retiree members, and 29 student members of ALAO.
In addition to a reduced conference fee, ALAO membership makes you eligible to apply for various grants and awards. These honors can supplement your professional development or help a student member get a kickstart in his or her career. We are currently offering free
student membership to full-time students enrolled in an MLIS/MLS program. As you welcome your MLIS students back this fall, encourage them to enrich their experience with an ALAO membership. Contact Katy Mathuews, Membership Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
