Becoming a YABS Member

Membership to the Young Alberta Book Society is open to anyone who wishes to join, though certain criteria must be met for eligibility to participate in our programs as an artist member. The annual full membership fee is $50 for touring artists and Taleblazers host schools and libraries.

We also have an annual supporter membership category which is for individuals or institutions who wish to be a part of the organization, have voting rights, have artist webpages maintained, or be part of our referral efforts, but who do not wish or intend to participate in any of programming. The membership fee for this category is $25. A supporter membership can be upgraded to a full membership at any time of year. Full memberships may not be downgraded mid-year, but may be renewed as supporters the following spring upon expiry.

The membership year runs from July 1 to June 30. Membership fees are non-refundable and will not be pro-rated.

Please take a look at our For Artists page for more information about becoming a touring artist member.
