2016 CALA membership renewal

Dear Midwest Chapter members,

This is a gentle reminder of the CALA membership application and renewal as the CALA general election will be held in spring.

Please be aware that if you joined/renewed your membership before July 1 2015, your membership was expired on December 31, 2015.
You need to renew your membership soon in order to keep it up-to-date.

Here is one significant change. According to the updated CALA Bylaws (effective July 1, 2015), Membership Dues cover 12 months from the month when application and dues are received. Therefore, for those who joined/renewed their membership after July 1, 2015, your membership is active until the same joining/renewal date next year.

The CALA membership page can be accessed at: http://cala-web.org/membership.

For students of Library and Information Science and of Chinese nationality or of Chinese descent, please consider taking advantage of the 2013-2016 Dr. Tze-chung Li Student Membership Scholarship at http://www.cala-web.org/node/1507
This one time donation from Dr. Tze-chung Li grants the first year membership dues for new student members.

According to the 2013-2015 CALA Membership Directory, there are 67 members from the Midwest Chapter out of 375 active CALA members in North America. Please refer this membership email drive to your colleagues who are interested in joining CALA.
Please contact us if you have additional questions.
