What's New

You can support IASL - for "Fifty More"

Did you know that 2021 is IASL's 50th birthday?

Due to the pandemic, IASL lost two vital 2020 revenue streams: new members who are enrolled by conference fee and the designated portion of conference revenue which is paid to IASL.

To help recover these significant losses, an anonymous supporter will match all donations to IASL's Operations Budget in 2021, up to $5000 US dollars total, in honor of our Golden Anniversary

Your gift large or small to the Operations Budget now can keep our Association going strong as we plan for "Fifty More" years of service to our children, colleagues, and communities worldwide. Please make your donation on our donation page.

Support-A-Member (SAM) applications will now be accepted throughout the year!

Funded through the generosity of IASL members, this membership is granted for a two year term. Learn more about how to apply for the award here.
