  • Individual Membership is for one person, and materials are delivered to your address or email. If you move to another congregation, your membership goes with you. It cannot be transferred to another person. 


  • Church Membership is in the churchs name, with only one person as the designated contact person. Anyone else from your congregation should take out an Individual Membership in CLABC.  Materials can be sent to the church address/email or to the address/email of the designated person. Church Membership stays with the congregation. Should that person be unable to continue as Librarian, the congregation may designate someone else.


  • The registration fee for the CLABC Conference is subsidized for the Church Membership representative and for Individual Members. If you can interest someone else to join CLABC theres no better time than the present!
