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

New Transmittal Instructions – Transmittal Instructions 2020

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

Download the new Eligibility Infographic to post and share!  This is a great tool for unit Membership Chairs!

Membership Applications

Each week Department receives an average of 10 – 15 membership applications that are incomplete or incorrect.  These are in turn sent back to the Unit for completion.  This not only delays your new member’s application process, but also creates a lot of extra work for your Unit and Department.  Please click here to download a document that includes the most recent ALA membership application, a NEW helpful checklist, and membership eligibility explained.  Please be sure your unit membership chair has these helpful tools.  Please contact Department if you ever have questions regarding processing membership.  We’re happy to help!
