NSLA / APLA Introduce Discounted Joint Association Membership
 
On behalf of the two executives, Lynn Somers, president of the Nova
Scotia Library Association (NSLA), and Donna Bourne-Tyson, president of
the Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA), are pleased to
announce a new discounted joint membership for prospective NSLA and APLA
members.   
 
New or renewing members can join both associations and save money in
the process!  Members will save $15 or approximately 20% when
memberships are taken out in both associations.  A joint membership will
cost $65.  “NSLA and APLA recognize that there are several library
associations to which our members belong and this is one way that we can
acknowledge and mitigate the financial impact of multi-association
membership and also encourage new members to join.  We value the support
of all our members and want more library workers to benefit from
association membership” commented APLA president Donna Bourne-Tyson.
 
As APLA is a larger association, it is willing to assume a greater
financial risk to facilitate this project.  After some discussion, the
NSLA and APLA Boards agreed that this trial should be handled like the
current membership trial agreement that NSLA has put in place with the
Nova Scotia Association of Library Technicians (NSALT).   It was agreed
that a joint membership rate would only apply to individual members, not
to students or to institutions.  All NSLA and APLA renewal and expiry
notices will be adjusted to note this change, effective February 1,
2008.   
 
APLA will be exploring options for similar joint membership discounts
with the other library associations in Atlantic Canada.
 
NSLA president Lynn Somers notes “We are very excited about this new
member benefit.  Hopefully it will attract new members in addition to
providing our current members with a bit of a financial break”.
