CEAL Membership: Renew | Confirm | Join

Join CEAL | Confirm Status | CEAL Home

Please make sure your CEAL membership is current, and if you haven't joined CEAL yet, this is a good time to do so.

Why? Because only current CEAL members are eligible to vote in the CEAL election, to be held in February, or to get involved in CEAL-related committee work. Besides, with CEAL membership you get a free subscription to JEAL, the Journal of East Asian Libraries, and the benefit of association with the oldest and most important group of East Asian Library specialists in North America.

Next Steps?

Remember, the CEAL election is coming up in less than a month. Don’t delay!

Please let me know if you have questions.
