For those APLA members that missed the previous announcements ... there's still a little bit of time to apply.

The deadline for both the First Timers Conference Grant and Library Support Staff 2010 Conference Registration Grant is March 31st.  See below for details.

==== First Timer's Conference Grant =======

Are you an APLA member that hasn't attended an APLA Conference? APLA offers a grant for a first time attendee and this year's conference will be held in Saint John, NB [ ]. 

To be eligible for the First Timer's Conference Grant, an applicant must be a personal member of APLA, residing in Atlantic Canada, and planning to attend her/his first APLA annual conference. Grants are allocated, consistent with general APLA guidelines, to help meet conference related expenses. If more applications are received than can be met by the fund, money will be awarded by drawing from the names of all eligible applicants. Recipients will be expected to write a short report, for the Executive and the APLA Bulletin, summarizing their conference experience. Applicants should include name, business address, chosen means for contacting (mail, e-mail, telephone, fax) estimated costs (travel, accommodation, meals, registration), and a signed compliance with eligibility requirements.
