This committee should promote membership in the Association and it should encourage nonmembers to join. There should be a representative of each section of the Association on the committee. Soon after the first of the year, a check should be made with the Executive Director (an ex-officio member of this committee) to get names of members whose dues are not paid.
It is the responsibility of the Membership Committee to make information available regarding NLA – its structure, dues, membership benefits, etc. to members and potential members. Such information should be provided any time but especially at the spring meetings and the annual convention. They have the responsibility to staff a membership table during the annual convention.
The Membership Committee also designs and prints the membership brochures, both personal and institutional. Every two years this committee should compile, update, and put the Membership Directory on the NLA Internet site. A limited number of print directories will be available to those without Internet access.
