ARLIS/NA Ohio Valley membership

It seems that there has been some confusion about when to pay our chapter dues. Our dues are by the calendar year, just like national. If your name is not on the membership list for 2017 , I don’t have a record of you paying your dues.

If you would like to join the chapter for this year, please visit our membership page. We have a lot of great stuff in the works for the fall meeting!!! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

If you already paid your dues, THANK YOU!!
