As you all know, ARLIS/NA is a growing, dynamic organization. The membership includes architecture and art librarians, visual resources professionals, artists, curators, educators, publishers, and others interested in visual arts information. What an exciting time to become an officer of the Ohio Valley Chapter.

As an officer, your national membership will be paid for.  If your position is seeking tenure, this is a great opportunity to add this to your resume. It is also a great and low-commitment way to get involved with ARLIS.  A great stepping stone for involvement at the national level as well.
