Are you an outstanding information professional with more than 5 years’ experience? Then SLA Europe wants to send you to the 2012 SLA Conference in Chicago!
Deadline extended to 16 March 2012
Co-sponsored by the SLA Leadership and Management Division, and kindly supported by Dow Jones, the SLA Europe Conference Award is a chance for an outstanding information professional to attend the 2012 SLA Conference and Info-Expo, 15-18 July, in Chicago, Illinois.
The successful applicant will receive an expenses-paid trip to the conference, and will have the opportunity after the conference to get involved with the work of SLA Europe and the Leadership and Management Division (LMD).
This fantastic opportunity is open to all information professionals living or working in Europe, who have more than five years’ experience in the field, and have not won an SLA Europe Early Careers Conference Award (ECCA) within the last five years. Applicants do not need to be SLA members. The deadline for applications is 16 March 2012.
What do we mean by ‘outstanding?’ Someone who goes beyond the everyday demands of their job to provide innovative, creative, or high-level support for their users. Do you organise extra-curricula events to raise the profile of your service and make sure users get the best from you? Have you developed a new service or way of working that’s had a positive impact on your users? Are you a prolific and instructive writer, teacher, or trainer? Do you make a difference? If so, we want to hear from you!
