The awards, co-sponsored by four Special Libraries Association divisions (Business & Finance, Leadership & Management, Legal, and Pharmaceutical & Health Technology) offer new professionals an amazing opportunity to attend the SLA annual conference and INFO-EXPO in San Diego, and covers conference fees, flights, expenses and accommodation.
I was extremely fortunate to win an ECCA this year to attend SLA 2012 in Chicago, co-sponsored by the Business & Finance Division. It was an unbelievable experience and an incredible opportunity as a new professional. I met LIS professionals from around the world, experienced a country I always dreamed of visiting, and joined a welcoming and enthusiastic community.
More information about the awards, including how to apply, is at the SLA Europe website. I urge you to apply. You have nothing to lose, and you could end up in San Diego!
