The Awards Committee of the American Association of Law Libraries has selected the Virginia Association of Law Libraries as the recipient of the 2003 One-Time Chapter Professional Development Award.
VALL won the award for its educational program Exploring Connections at VALL -- 2002. According to the committee, the program’s cohesive theme worked well with individual topics on new or well-established areas of law librarianship. The theme was also carried out in panel discussions and in the clearly structured social events that promoted interaction among the participants.
There were no nominations for the Comprehensive Award.
Introduced in 2002, the Chapter Professional Development Awards recognize outstanding educational programming developed by AALL chapters for their members and others. The One-Time Award is handed out to a chapter for a single quality program or workshop of one-half day in length or more. The Comprehensive Award recognizes a chapter that excels at designing a comprehensive quality professional program of up to one year in length.
The award will be presented July 14 during the AALL 96th Annual Meeting and Conference in Seattle during the Association Luncheon.
