Department President Natalie Myers' Message To Members
Since joining the ALA In 2006, I have developed a great passion for the organization. I hold its ideals of Justice, Freedom, Democracy, and Loyalty, close to my heart.
Helping to accomplish the goals of our national organization's
Five Year Strategic Plan is of upmost importance to me. I want to continue building upon the goals our department has accomplished. By utilizing the talents and experiences of our members and officers, along with all the resources offered by national, we can achieve our goals.
Membership is critical to the existence of the ALA. We not only need to recruit new members, but seriously need to create an environment to encourage young people to want to become and remain members. After all, they are our future.
As we have strength in numbers, we also have strength in knowledge. This year I'm urging all our members to "learn The Auxiliary." We must know who we are, what we do, and why we matter. This is essential to growth. You "can't sell your product, if you don't know it."
We are living in a technological world. What use to take days, weeks, or months, can know be achieved in seconds. Let us embrace change and diversity, and make unity, our strength.
As your 2017-18 Department President, I want to execute a vision of knowledge, accountability and leadership.

The national secretary announced at the ALA National Convention some exciting membership changes. We all learned you can pay your membership dues online. Now you can pay dues for multiple members via telephone! In addition, new members can now join online! How exciting is this? Many of you have inquired about this and asked these questions over the last few months. Well, your prayers have been answered. For more information about ALA membership and programs, contact the Department Secretary, the Department Membership Chairman, or any member of the ALA.
