Membership Renewal

Message from ALTA President Jenn Anheliger (Explaining new membership fees)


At the ALTA AGM a resolution to increase our fees for the first time in 9 years was passed. This increase is necessary for ALTA to continue to provide the services, digital spaces, and collections of educational material that our members rely on.  It is imperative that we continue to evolve and excel and take meaningful steps to providing our members with valuable services. 

ALTA strives to be attuned to our members and given the economic climate we have decided to limit our increase for boards serving populations greater than 5000.  This modest increase will allow ALTA to continue services for its members and at the same time, recognizes the funding uncertainty that many library boards are facing. 

Over the 2021 year, we will undergo an organizational review and continue to monitor our initiatives closely with consistent member consultation so that we may refine and pursue those that prove to be successful and discontinue those that are not. 

We are grateful to be able to rely on our members for support during a time where library organizations are faced with much ambiguity.  By coming together at this critical juncture, we are confident that we can continue to provide trustees with the tools needed to translate their legislative responsibilities into the skills needed to shape the libraries and communities they serve.  

We thank you for your continued support.

Jenn Anheliger
