Policies and Practices

The Special Libraries Association has established Policies and Practices for various topics related to the Association and its operations. Some of the Policies and Practices were established for various program areas in the Association. These Policies and Practices are to serve as informational purposes for SLA Staff, SLA Board of Directors and SLA Association Units. The Policies and Practices are reviewed periodically to ensure that they are still current. If at anytime you have questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact membership@sla.org +1.703.647.4900.
