Society CircleSince its founding in 1972, the Art Libraries Society of North America has become the leading association for art information professionals in the world. It has grown into a dynamic organization numbering over 1,100 art and architecture librarians, visual resource professionals, publishers, educators, curators and others interested in visual arts information.
Maintaining the Society's position as the leader in the field requires an ongoing commitment. Our mission is to train new art information professionals, provide assistance with research, publish material relevant to the field, and present diverse speakers at conferences in order to enhance the knowledge of our members. To help meet these goals, the Society Circle was formed in 2003 to serve as the Society's fundraising organization. Donations to the Society Circle can be targeted toward three existing funds - the Conference Speakers Fund, the Internship Fund, the Alternative Voices Speakers Fund or can be unrestricted and used wherever the need is greatest.
Alternative Voices Speakers FundThe Alternative Voices Speakers Fund was established in 2008 to bring a diversity of voices to the ARLIS/NA annual conference by encouraging the participation of non-ARLIS/NA speakers from traditionally underrepresented racial or ethnic groups. The fund supports attendance costs and a small honorarium for recommended speakers who self-identify with one or more traditionally underrepresented racial or ethnic groups. All donations to the fund will count towards your Society Circle membership. You can donate when renewing your ARLIS/NA membership or contact the Chair of the Development Committee.
