Call to Action

Great Time to Join ALSC

As we begin fall, the real work of ALSC begins. Committees start buckling down and working on their charges. Online courses begin the serious readings and discussions. Webinars start popping up for learners on-the-go. And members turn their attention to two very important events on the horizon: 1) the Midwinter Meeting in Dallas, TX, and 2) ALSC National Institute in Indianapolis, IN. It’s an exhilarating time to be a member, so why not join us?
