ARLIS/WNY has presented a professional development award to a chapter
member since 1994. This year, we are pleased to announce the availability of two $200 awards. This award is intended to help members, particularly new professionals, become involved in ARLIS/NA by attending the Annual ARLIS/NA Conference, which will be in Toronto, March 29th – April 2nd.

The conference website is at

Applicants for the award must be dues-paying members of ARLIS/WNY and ARLIS/NA. All ARLIS/WNY members are eligible for the award. The chapter’s officers, members who have never attended the national conference, and those who will be participating in the conference as speakers, session/program moderators, moderators of a section, division or interest group, or serving on committees are especially encouraged to apply for the award.

Applicants for the award should include a current resume and a letter describing the applicant’s participation in the conference (if applicable), the benefits anticipated from conference attendance, and all travel funding expected from the applicant’s institution or other sources.
