New England Library Association (NELA) Joint Membership
We are excited to offer Joint Membership with the New England Library Association (NELA). You can take advantage of paying the discounted fee of $20 a year ($15 a year for students and retirees) to become a NELA member, in addition to your regular RILA membership. Join both state and regional library associations and you’ll be full members of both and receive all the benefits from each organization.
The reduced rate is available with your Individual Membership only, not through your Institutional Membership. If your library has an institutional membership, please contact the Membership Committee or NELA (nelib.org) to inquire about adding NELA Extended Memberships to staff covered by state institutional memberships.
Your NELA Joint Membership includes NELA News and email announcements, discounts on NELA events and conferences, access to shadowing opportunities and mentors, and connection with library professionals across New England.
The mission of the New England Library Association is to provide educational and leadership opportunities for library staff in support of improved library services for the people of New England. This includes mentoring newer members of the library profession and increased networking opportunities.
