Membership with SLA provides you with many opportunities for involvement, professional development, program supports, and more. Membership also offers you benefits not afforded to non-members. You can be an individual member, an associate member, or be included in an institutional membership. Each type of membership provides different opportunities and benefits.
The SLA Board of Directors consults the membership in many ways: getting feedback from articles in SLAte, surveys, and consultations at the annual conference. SLA’s 2015 membership survey report is available in colour and grey scale.
In the past several years, SLA has held receptions around the province to provide opportunities for members to meet the Board face-to-face, network, and socialize together. These have been called President’s Receptions and more recently Saskatchewan Libraries Happy Hour.
