The Paraprofessional Section is currently offering a limited number of scholarships to Para members to attend NLA Advocacy Day (formerly known as Legislative day), Tuesday, March 8, 2016.
We are hoping to encourage Paras to be more active in government issues and make them aware of how legislative issues can affect libraries. For more information on Advocacy day, clickhere. This year the library community is mounting a opposition to LB969 so it’s a good time to take an interest. Find out more about NLA Update on Position Opposing LB969.
The scholarship recipients will be asked to submit a brief statement about their experience at Advocacy Day. The statements will be posted to the Para Facebook page.
Not a Para Member: the Para Executive Board will fund your additional membership fee to become a Para ($15) according to the latest Membership Form.
If you are interested submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org by ThursdayMarch 3, please include your name, address, email, phone, and library affiliation.
