More than ever before, we at the Catholic Library Association are looking to make your experience with our organization more productive and beneficial. Since 1921, the organization has grown into an international presence, and continues to advocate for those who share their talents and collaborate in constructive projects. As we approach our 95th year, we are in the midst of an important campaign to bolster membership and awareness on a more meaningful scale. Our efforts are focused on the central theme: “Building the future of CLA …together.” This focus calls for these simple yet potent means of engagement: Reach Out. Connect. Recruit.
In short, we need YOU! We are counting on the strength of our members and the power of community to make CLA survive, thrive, and serve.
Word-of-mouth referrals are the most effective membership recruitment channel, and we are asking for your help in recruiting new members.
As promised, here are the resources you can use to reach out to potential members:
In the attachments below you will find a letter and membership brochure in pdf format that you can copy and paste into your personal email to friends, colleagues, co-workers, and classmates
The CLA office will correspond with anyone seeking information or completing the online membership form, which now includes a section where referring members can be identified.
