New Year's Resolution

I know, I know...way past the deadline on New Year's Resolutions. Well it is never to late to make a pledge to do your best to inform everyone around you about the benefits of NALS. If you love your participation in NALS then don't you think your co-workers might enjoy it as well? The kicker in the deal is that if you get 5 of those co-workers to see the value of a NALS membership then you can get your National Dues waived. That is a great incentive to spread the word about NALS and everything we have to offer. You need to remember that all of the opportunities that NALS offers on a national level may be claimed as your own projects. NALS is here to support state and local chapters and our online CLE and webinar opportunities are a great selling point for you on a local level. You don't need to feel as though your state or chapter needs to provide all the CLE your members require. Just tell them about what is going on at and let them see for themselves. A lot of times we take for granted the fact that we read the website and e-News and know what is going on...unfortunately many members do not read these things the way that you do. They need a little push to get them engaged in what they have available to them.

So be gentle and give them a little shove (make sure no stairs are around) and remind them that they can get top-notch education from the NALS website in the comforts of their own home.

Also be sure to take the New Value of Membership Survey...this really helps guide NALS and allows us to know what you want and need. Click here to take survey
