Membership

Join the community of professionals dedicated to providing library services for all students in Virginia. Members of VAASL receive discounted registration for VAASL Annual and Spring Conferences; a complimentary digital copy of our publication, the VAASL Voice; and our member-to-member network, which includes discussion forums, personal member circles, and a listserv only available to VAASL members.

Did you know that, as a VAASL member, you are represented on the national level by our participation and leadership roles in AASL? We send representatives to the annual ALA and AASL National Conferences; ALA Legislative Day in Washington, DC; the School Library Journal Leadership Summit; and serve on VDOE committees. You may know that the current AASL President is fellow Virginian, Mary Keeling, who is a VAASL Past-President. The current AASL Treasurer is Judy Deichman, former VAASL Treasurer. Your issues are raised at the national level through our leadership representatives. Virginia is certainly the “State of AASL Presidents," with five current and former AASL Presidents being VAASL members.

From July 1-September 30 each year membership enters a renewal period. To continue your membership in VAASL you can renew by accessing the invoice sent to your designated email in the VAASL.org system or by clicking "My Profile" and selecting "Invoices" or by clicking "Join/Renew Now" at the right sidebar.

Any member can add an annual print subscription of the Voice to their membership for $5. You will get a print copy sent through the mail. All members can access a digital copy at VAASL.org under the Resources menu option.
