Join a division as part of your membership registration. Then participate in division activities or volunteer to serve! (Note: membership is not required to participate in division activities, but membership is required to volunteer. Extra fees may apply for non-members attending division events.)
Responsibilities of each Division:
Division leadership plans programs for the annual conference. The division coordinates program ideas and funding strategies with the association's second vice president.
In addition to annual conference programs, the division may plan programs and meetings of interest to its members. These may be offered independently throughout the state or in conjunction with chapter or division meetings, as well as electronically. Registration fees may be required.
Divisions may communicate with members and the association in a variety of ways: The Bulletin, statewide and regional electronic mailing lists, as well as this website.
Members of PaLA are eligible for membership in any combination of divisions and round tables, not to exceed three. Membership in additional units may be purchased for a fee.
