ALA-APA Fundraising Event
Thanks to all who supported the first ever fundraising event recently held during the 2013 ALA-Midwinter Meetings in Seattle, WA. Proceeds from the event supported the ALA Allied Professional Association’s (ALA-APA) work in promoting “the mutual professional interests of librarians and other library workers” through research, advocacy and enabling the certification of individuals in specializations beyond the initial professional degree. The ALA-APA is a nonprofit organization chartered in the State of Illinois and serves as a companion organization to the American Library Association (ALA), an educational association chartered in the State of Massachusetts to “promote library service and librarianship.” If you would still like to support the cause, we encourage you to make a donation.
Next year’s event is being planned for: Saturday, January 25, 2014, in Philadelphia, PA. Stay tuned for details. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact: email@example.com or 312-280-4278. Website at: http://www.ala-apa.org
