Library support staff, paraprofessionals, and paralibrarians residing Alabama are invited to become joint members of both ALA and the Alabama Library Association (ALLA) at a special dues rate of $65.00/year.
Joint members have full rights and benefits of personal membership in both ALA and ALLA. This special dues rate includes automatic membership in ALA's Library Support Staff Interests Round Table (LSSIRT) and Alabama's Paraprofessional Round Table (PART) -- special interest groups conduct programming and continuing education specifically for support and paraprofessional staff. Joint members always receive discounts on conference attendance, products and services from both associations during their membership. More information about ALLA's membership benefits can be found at http://www.allanet.org/membership_benefits.cfm.
Joint Members can take advantage of this reduced rate for up to 3 years. Joining both associations independently would cost $75.00. Eligibility is limited to first-time and returning (lapsed) members of both associations.
