Discussion Do you need AASL materials for an upcoming state conference?

by Jonna Ashley (staff) on Mon, Jul 28, 2014 at 04:19 pm

I have started receiving requests for AASL promotional flyers, and the membership booth, for affiliate state meetings. If you would also like to request AASL materials to display at your state conference this fall you may use the attached form. You can request specific items, or just let AASL put together a variety of flyers on membership, professional development, publications etc. For larger meetings, you can also request that the AASL membership display and sign be sent to you.
