First-time Midwest Chapter Meeting attendees: Apply for the Midwest Chapter/MLA Professional Development Award!
HSLM - I'm on the Midwest Chapter Awards committee this year, and am in charge of recruiting applications for the Professional Development Award. If you or anyone you know is considering attending Midwest Chapter for the first time, apply for this award!
Are you thinking about attending your first Midwest Chapter/MLA meeting? If you have a master's degree in library/information science and have never attended a Midwest Chapter Annual Meeting before, apply for the Midwest Chapter/MLA Professional Development Award!
