Serve on an ALISE Committee!

Have you considered serving on a committee? ALISE committees power the association and drive us towards fulfilling our mission. Volunteering also provides a number of benefits:
    1.  Develop new skills
    2. Meet new people 
    3. Connect with your community
    4. Advance the profession
    5. Give back to the profession
    6. Be a part of something bigger
In order to align with ALISE's commitment to broad representation of our membership on committees, we welcome volunteers from all areas: doctoral students, new and tenured faculty, and part-time/adjunct faculty. Whether you are new to ALISE or have been a member for a long time, your contributions and insights are welcomed.

Revised Personal Membership Dues Structure to Launch January 1, 2022

ALISE Revises Personal Membership Dues Structure, Launches January 1, 2022

In 2021, the ALISE Board of Directors and its membership approved a proposal presented by the Membership Committee to create a tiered dues structure based on World Bank Gross National Income (GNI) data. The committee’s proposal was informed by research conducted by prior ALISE task forces formed to research international dues rates and by the committee’s environmental scan of similarly oriented membership-based associations. The tiered fee structure for personal memberships becomes effective January 1, 2022.

The revised dues structure provides a more equitable fee structure for individuals located in countries with GNI per capita at or below $24,999.00 USD. In addition, the structure provides greater opportunity for information professionals outside of North America to engage in the association through reduced rates for those in Tier 2 or Tier 3 countries. The ALISE 2021-2025 Strategic Plan includes specific objectives and strategies to increase international membership (Strategy 2.2.6) and to make ALISE welcoming and inclusive of people and program from countries outside of the U.S. and Canada (Objective 2.5). The tiered dues structure is a single, albeit significant, step to enable a more global presence and engagement within ALISE.
