Reception at ALA Annual Conference Will Honor NMRT Award Recipients

Don't forget to add the NMRT Annual Awards Reception to your ALA 2013 Annual Conference schedule! The reception will be held Sunday, June 30, from 7:30-8:30 pm in the Chicago Room at the Palmer House, 17 E Monroe St. All conference attendees are welcome to attend and enjoy light refreshments. Networking opportunities will abound.

The reception will honor the NMRT's Shirley Olofson Memorial Award recipient, Katy DiVittorio, along with the recipients of NMRT's Annual Conference Professional Development Attendance Award and Professional Development Grant. Eligible NMRT members submitted essays to apply for the awards, which provide financial assistance to attend the ALA Annual Conference.

"Participating in ALA and NMRT activities is a wonderful opportunity for LIS students, new librarians and mid-career librarians. The awards we recognize at this reception allow deserving recipients the chance to experience the ALA Annual Conference," said NMRT President Janel Kinlaw.

Please plan to join us as we celebrate our organization and support its mission of encouraging new members in the profession though active involvement in ALA and NMRT.
