How Do I Get Involved at ALA?
Learn about the ways to get more involved in ALA through Association resources, initiatives and by meeting other members.
"I've always considered my ALA membership a great investment. What I get in return is worth far more than what comes out of my pocket. It's not just the opportunities to connect and learn - or how ALA has allowed my voice to be heard - but it's the little things too, like being an ALA Ambassador. With ALA, we can make a difference for each other." - Steven Bell, Temple University
