MLA Annual Meeting May 2014
Contest: Building Your Case to Attend MLA 2014
The MLA’14 National Program Committee is looking for winning strategies that MLA members have used to obtain funding from their institutions or employers for an MLA annual meeting. Two prizes of $500 each will be awarded for the most original, interesting, and compelling “asks” for funding.
Submitting your strategy or story will not only enter you into the contest, but will help build a repository of tips, methods, and examples of how your colleagues were able to successfully secure institutional funding to attend MLA.
Entries can be submitted here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/makethecase between November 1 and midnight on December 31, central time. Winners will be notified by February 1, 2014, and the winning entries will be reported in the February 7, 2014, issue of MLA-FOCUS. All submissions will be displayed online and available for your fellow librarians to read and learn from.
Please help spread the word about this contest. All MLA members are eligible!
