Discounted NELA Membership Available!
RILA is excited to launch a joint membership with NELA (New England Library Association). Join both state and regional library associations and you’ll be full members of both and receive all the benefits from each organization.
For NELA it includes: NELA News and email announcements, discounts on NELA events and conferences, access to shadowing opportunities and mentors, and connecting with library professionals across New England.
For RILA it includes: a professional network of colleagues and mentors,
a subscription to the RILA Bulletin, which features articles on library news, issues, and developments in Rhode Island and surrounding New England library communities. A discounted registration fee for the RILA Annual Conference, which educates and motivates members by presenting speakers, discussions, and workshops on diverse topics. Voting rights. The opportunity to become active on RILA Committees, which address a variety of library-related issues and concerns
RILA members can now take advantage of paying the discounted fee of $20 a year ($15 a year for students and retirees) to become NELA members, in addition to your regular RILA membership. The reduced rate is available with your Individual Membership only, not through your Institutional Membership. When you sign in to renew or join there will be a field for the Joint NELA Membership and it will automatically renew. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
