Thank you for participating in the ALAO Membership Survey!
A sincere thank you to all those who participated in the ALAO Membership Survey distributed last fall. We had 181 responses! That’s nearly half of our membership which includes 346 regular members, 4 retiree members, and 21 student members! We received valuable feedback on preferences regarding conferences, workshops, and membership benefits that the Board has already begun analyzing and incorporating into our efforts to provide a valued professional association. Congratulations to Rob Snyder of Bowling Green State University for being randomly selected to receive a Visa gift card donated by one of our generous vendors.
As we look forward to the Spring Interest Group workshops, take a moment to ensure your membership is active. Your $40 annual dues provides you with discounted annual conference registration fees, access to online materials, opportunities to apply for research and continuing education grants, a diversity scholarship, and the priceless opportunity to network with fellow library staff from around the state. And don’t forget to encourage your full-time MLIS/MLS student to join for free! Check out the ALAO website or contact Katy Mathuews, Membership Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
