Joint Membership Program

One category of joint memberships is offered by the American Library Association: Joint Student Membership. If your state association is interested in participating in the joint student membership program, please contact the Chapter Relations Office. Other ways to join the association are available. See ALA Student Membership: Frequently Asked Questions Answered.

Please note that ALA membership cannot be added to a current Chapter membership. You can join ALA as a joint member when your Chapter membership expires. The time frame for current ALA students to convert their memberships to joint student memberships is 90 days.
