Celebrating Women of Service

To honor the powerful women in our ALA community, the ALA Foundation is observing its second “Celebrating Women of Service” day in conjunction with International Women’s Day on March 8. We hope you’ll join us by donating in honor of a woman who inspires you the way the ALA community has inspired this celebratory day of giving.

International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women, who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities. Show your support for women and the ALA Foundation on March 8.

Attention Unit Membership Chairs

Department has been receiving an abundance of membership applications that are not complete!  When we receive incomplete applications they are mailed back to the membership chair with a credit memo with the request that the COMPLETED application, new transmittal form, and copy of the credit memo be sent back to Department.  This causes significant delays, extra time for Department staff, and extra expense. 

Please see the Application Instruction Sheet provided CLICK HERE

Department reserves the right to mail back your entire membership submission if all parts are not complete and correct.
