The AALL Annual Meeting & Conference is still off in the distance, but it’s never too early to plan! I'm pleased to announce that there are two opportunities for NOALL members to receive funding to attend AALL from July 10-13 in Denver. NOALL is offering a $500 scholarship to attend AALL, and NOALL is also eligible for a chapter registration award from AALL. The form will serve as an application for both awards. Please note that there are different deadlines for each award.
1) The application deadline for the AALL chapter registration award is April 16, 2010. Below is a description of the award from AALL:
For each Annual Meeting & Conference, AALL underwrites one free full registration for a number of chapters on a rotation basis. It is the intent that the award be presented to newer members of AALL who meet whatever other criteria the awarding chapter may determine.
By providing an opportunity for a newer member to attend an Annual Meeting, everyone benefits – the member, the chapter and AALL. Our goal is to provide an enriching and valuable experience as the member learns and networks with colleagues from across the country. The result for the chapter and AALL is a member who supports and participates in her or his professional association, both locally and nationally.
2) The application deadline for the NOALL scholarship to attend AALL is May 21, 2010. The NOALL scholarship is open to all NOALL members, as well as students pursuing an MLIS with an interest in law librarianship.
