Institutional Membership


ICSA offers a special institutional membership for churches, synagogues, other faith organizations, secondary schools, hospitals, and mental health centers.

Institutional membership includes print membership benefits for a designated contact person at the institution (to make sure that your library receives our publications) and Web membership benefits for up to five other employees or volunteers of the institution.

We ask $100 for an institutional membership, a savings of up to $225, if the six memberships were obtained separately.

Members receive: 

ICSA Today - Magazine (3 issues/year) – electronic version for Web members.
