Membership & Benefits   

The Leaders Circle is a new tier of member ship and participation in the LYRASIS community. This membership tier costs $2,500 and replaces all current existing dues and gives you the following benefits.

  • Shape the future through the LYRASIS Catalyst Fund
    LYRASIS has created the Catalyst Fund to enable members to "test and try" new ideas that have the potential to advance the library, archives and museum communities through initial seed funding to kickstart innovation. This year LYRASIS is excited to contribute up to $100,000 to the Catalyst Fund, and those funds will be directed by Leaders Circle members, who will also help shape the projects and support these endeavors through collaboration and leadership.

  • Collaborate and Discuss with the Community at Regional Leaders Forums
    Twelve sessions were held in FY 2016 with over 800 hours of discussions. These forums are a great way to engage with your fellow professionals, involve key staff, expose bright new stars on your teams. FY 2017 winter and spring schedule will be announced soon.

  • Expand your Expertise with Strategic Leadership and Key Professionals
    Leaders Circle members will help LYRASIS set strategic direction, programs and initiatives based on the needs and opportunities identified by you as content owners and managers. Plus, you'll have access to LYRASIS executive staff for consulting and collaboration.

  • Work with Your Fellow LYRASIS Members at the Member Summit
    Leaders Circle members also may attend the full LYRASIS Member Summit, held annually in October.

  • Enjoy Exclusive Access to the Leaders Circle Annual Meeting
    This event is exclusively for Leaders Circle members and select invited guests. The pre-conference will start with a "Brain Power Breakfast." This will be followed by discussions surrounding the top trends, challenges and opportunities that are impacting the areas of content, digital technologies and software.
