You’re an ALSC member, or ALSC-curious. You know about the network of support, the child-focused initiatives, how loudly we lose our minds during the Youth Media Award announcements. But did you know that ALSC can provide you funding for your professional development or committee projects? There’s money for membership, conference attendance, library school and committee initiatives. There might be money for your committee or for you. Yes, you!
The Budget Committee wants to help connect ALSC folks–or those who could be, with the right financial support-to the funding available. Check out our new infographic to follow the path and find out what money might be waiting for you.
