About the ALTAFF/GALE Oustanding Trustee Conference Grant
The ALTAFF/Gale Outstanding Trustee Conference Grant enables a public library Trustee to attend the ALA Annual Conference. A grant of $850 each is awarded annually to a public library Trustee who have demonstrated qualitative interests and efforts in supportive service of the local public library. The Conference Grant, made possible by an annual gift from Gale Cengage Learning, is administered by ALTAFF. A formal presentation to winners is made at the ALA Annual Conference. Applications are due by December 31 of the year before the Annual Conference year, and the winners will be notified by late March of the Annual Conference year.
