Professional groups are important to individuals and organisations. Library Associations offer members the opportunity to raise their profile and establish professionalism. We are institutional members of the Library Association of Ireland (LAI) for years. I did in the past have a personal membership, but this has lapsed for sometime. This ‘thing’ has made me reconsider renewing my individual membership. Being a member provides a sense of community along with networking, collaboration and CPD opportunities. I particularly like the fact that you can join different sections and groups within the LAI; thus, making the membership more personal. Going forward I would like to apply for the Associateship of the Library Association of Ireland (ALAI) an award that signifies both academic success and practical experience in library and information studies.
The form is printed, I am going to fill it in this week and update my individual membership.
