What does ALA membership mean to you?  What benefits do you value as an ALA and Mile High Chapter member?  What recent membership enhancements have been made by ALA and the Mile High Chapter?  What new benefits are on the horizon?  Whether you’re a seasoned ALA veteran, a relatively new member or someone considering membership, this ALA Benefits review is just for you.



These questions and many more will be answered as we welcome our ALA Region 4 Representative, Karie Rivkin and several of the Mile High Chapter’s leaders including MHC Communications Committee Chair Grover Brittain and Reba Nance of the Colorado Bar Association.
