Dear NYSALJA Members,
As you know, the 2018 NAALJ Annual Meeting is being held at the Hilton St. Petersburgh Bayfront Hotel in St. Petersburgh Florida from October 14-17, 2018. The NAALJ and The NALJF boards are offering the Challenge Grant Program to New York for 2018.
The program is one of NAALJ’s efforts to support educational training and professionalism among ALJs across the country. It offers us an opportunity to choose an affiliate member to be the New York Challenge Grant recipient. The program is named “Challenge Grant” because NYSALJA will match NAALJ’s $500 grant for a total of $1,000.
The grant may be spent on the cost of conference registration, hotel, travel, or other related expenses.
NYSALJA also offers a separate $500 grant for the conference to another member of the Association.
Grant recipients for both grants must meet the following criteria:
- the recipient must be a current paid member of NYSALJA;
- the recipient must register for and attend the 2018 NAALJ Annual Meeting and Conference ;
- 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 by email at firstname.lastname@example.org which must be received by 3:00 PM on Friday, September 7, 2018.
The winners will be randomly drawn from the names submitted, and notified prior to the conference. The winner of the NAALJ/NYSALJA grants will receive reimbursement at the conference.
One last thing… if for some reason the winner of the grant is unable to attend (for any reason), the runner-up will be given the grant.
For information and registration for the conference, go to www.naalj.org.
Any questions should be directed to me through at email@example.com.
Thank you and good luck.
