Membership Dues Increase

As of January 1, 2010 the Special Libraries Association will be increasing their membership dues by 15% as per a vote by the SLA Board of Directors. This will be the first fee increase in 4 years. What does this mean for students? If you register to become an SLA member after January 1, 2010 you will pay $40USD instead of $35USD. This is the link to the SLA website that answers some popular questions regarding the dues increase and also provides more information about membership finances

If you are unsure about the benefits of being an SLA member you can come out to our event this Wednesday from 4-6pm in Rotman 151 and meet with members of the SLA Toronto Chapter and ask questions about membership or SLA Toronto in general. The website for the SLA Toronto Chapter is Wednesday’s event is a great opportunity to get all your professional association questions answered. If you are unable to make this event, this link to the SLA site will outline some of the many benefits of membership

We hope to see you on Wednesday at 4pm!
