CHICAGO – Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, members of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) are invited to “share the wealth” of AASL membership – and win! With each new member recruited, the referring AASL member will earn an entry into a monthly prize drawing as well as an entry into the final grand prize drawing worth an estimated $1,500. View complete campaign details at www.ala.org/aasl/STW

Using the “Share the Wealth” membership acceptance form located on the AASL website, all current, personal AASL members are encouraged to reach out to their colleagues and invite them to join the only national professional organization focused on school librarians and the school library community. 

“Being a member of AASL is a fabulous experience for school librarians,” said AASL President Terri Grief. “Many of us are ‘onlys’ – the only school librarian in the building – so having a professional support group like AASL is very important. We also need voices united at the national level to speak out for us loudly and regularly. AASL makes us better and we make it awesome. As John Green says, ‘DFTBA!’”

For each member recruited, the referring AASL member will receive an entry in a monthly drawing for a complimentary year of AASL membership. Their name will also be entered into a final grand prize drawing for an AASL 17th National Conference & Exhibition package, which includes registration, three nights lodging and round trip airfare to Columbus, Ohio. Multiple referrals will be accepted and will increase their chances to win.

To participate and earn entry into prize drawings, membership acceptance forms must be returned with payment directly to AASL. Memberships processed by ALA – either online or on paper – will not be included in the “Share the Wealth” campaign. For complete program rules and regulations, visit www.ala.org/aasl/STW.
