**Updated – deadline extended to 16 March 2012**
SLA Europe, in partnership with the Leadership and Management Division of SLA, and kindly supported by Dow Jones, are delighted to announce a new award for 2012. The Conference Award offers an outstanding information professional an expenses-paid chance to attend the SLA Conference in Chicago, IL, July 15-18 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!
The winner will also be given the opportunity, after the conference, to get involved with the work of SLA Europe and the Leadership and Management Division (LMD), by shadowing an SLA Europe or LMD board member, invited to join one of these unit’s committees, or become otherwise involved in their board activities.
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 within the last five years. Applicants do not need to be SLA members.
See the application guidelines and details of how to apply, and submit your application online. Deadline for applications for the 2012 Award is 8 March 2012.
