St. LOUIS SUBURBAN COUNCIL
OF INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION
Jody Rozbicki, Membership Director
St. Louis Suburban Council of International Reading Association is a true professional learning community with 206 members in 2015-2016. Congratulations to each of you who rushed to send your renewal membership forms this summer, recognizing the benefits of our collegial and professional organization.
Information about Membership
The Executive Board met in June 2016 and voted to raise membership dues for 2016-2017. Many Executive Board members reached out to members about the possibility of raising dues because of rising organizational costs. Many members responded that slightly raising dues to help with costs such as the council website and sponsoring a local literacy conference would be a good idea.
Remember that if you join as part of a team of two or more from your school building or district or university, you will be considered a Literacy Team and pay only $16.00 per person. To be considered a Literacy Team, you need to mail the membership forms to Jody in the same envelope. Single membership is $20.00. If you are a full time student or retired, you may join for $10.00. In addition, your local council membership gives you automatic membership in the Missouri State Council of International Reading Association. You will receive their benefits of website newsletters and state journal, The Missouri Reader. The advantage of professional networking will allow you to meet and share ideas with educators from all over the St. Louis suburban area, while developing lasting and valued friendships.
A Membership form for 2016-2017 is in the September 2016 newsletter. Please consider mailing your form in today. Our new membership year begins July 1, 2016. Also, membership forms may be printed from the council’s website, (www.STLSuburbanReading.org) or contact Jody at: (email@example.com).
See you at our September 8 meeting!
