The 2015 NAALJ Annual Meeting is being held in Portland, Oregon from October 11-14, 2015. Once again, NYSALJA will be offering two grants to assist a NYSALJA member in attending conference.

The first grant is a NAALJ/NYSALJA jointly sponsored $500 grant and waiver of the conference registration fee. The second is a NYSALJA sponsored stipend of $500. The deadline to apply for either of these grants is fast approaching: September 4, 2015.

Grant recipients must meet the following criteria:

  1. the recipient must be a current paid member of NYSALJA;
  2. the recipient must register for and attend the 2015 NAALJ Annual Meeting and Conference ;
  3. the recipient must not have received a grant from NYSALJA or NAALJ in the last three years.

To be considered for the grants, please submit a written request to me (e-mail or fax), which must be received by 5:00 PM on Thursday, September 3, 2015.

The two winners will be randomly drawn from the names submitted, and notified prior to the conference. The winner of the NAALJ/NYSALJA grant will receive reimbursement at the conference. The winner of the NYSALJA grant will be reimbursed $500 within approximately 2 weeks of receipt of proof of conference attendance.

Send an email to Anne Murphy at amurphy@oata.nyc.gov for this terrific opportunity. Include your name, email address and a telephone number at which you can be reached.
