Like many professionally active folks, Jenny Levine has questioned the usefulness of ALA membership (and even the usefulness of ALA itself). She had planned on joining ALA this week, out of her own pocket, until she got word that as an ALA member, she would be required to register for the conference in order to participate on the panel. Presenters who are not members get a free day pass. Huh? Says Jenny:
You either value your own professionals or you don’t, and the current policy tells me you don’t.
I still haven't filed my petition for a re-run for Council. Any thoughts on why I should or shouldn't?
