SLA Helps Unemployed Members
SLA's efforts include:
New SLA membership category, which allows those making $18,000 or less to join or renew for just $35.
Holding the line on conference costs, prolonging the early bird discount and, at its expiration, offering a second discount.
Webinars and replays are free for the first time.
SLA's Career Center offers a whole range of services, from resume posting to job listings to career advice-and it's free for members.
But according to the announcement, "one hard decision was that we will not offer further conference discounts to members who lose their jobs. We simply cannot afford to do this and pay the bills."
Hat tip to Law Librarians of Leisure, a great resource. See LLB's earlier post, Blog for Unemployed Law Librarians Recently Launched. [JH]
