Big News from IRA

From Marcie Craig Post, IRA Executive Director Dear Members: I am thrilled to announce that on January 26, the International Reading Association (IRA) will officially become the International Literacy Association (ILA). Welcome to ILA! The name change is a crucial step in our efforts to emphasize our role as the global professional membership association for literacy leaders and to position ourselves as champions in making literacy accessible to all. The change from "Reading" to "Literacy" came about as a result of ongoing discussions around who we are, what we do, and where we are going. With 60 years of experience as leaders in reading and literacy, we took on this task to solidify IRA's legacy and to build our future as advocates for literacy in the classroom and beyond.
