Enter to Win a Scholarship

Announcing the Arizona Chapter 2017 ALA Regional Legal Management or Specialty Series Conference Scholarship

This year we will be awarding four scholarships to attend either the Regional Legal Management Conference (to be held in Las Vegas September 7-9, 2017 or Nashville October 12-14, 2017) or one of the specialty conferences (held in Chicago on October 5-7, 2017). This is an opportunity to receive up to $1,350 towards costs to attend the conference. The scholarship is intended to help cover your airfare, half your hotel, transportation costs and registration for the conference.  To enter for an award, submit the attached application for scholarship. There are four drawing categories of award recipients this year:

Past Volunteer Award: This drawing is open to active members who have served in the past as a volunteer for the Chapter or the ALA on either a board or committee. Current voting Board members do not qualify.?

General Member Award: This drawing is open to all active members who are current in dues.

First Time Attendee Award: This drawing is open to all active members who have never had an opportunity to attend a specialty or regional conference in the past. 

Participation Award (multiple entries allowed): This drawing is based upon a number of criteria. Tickets are entered for all of the following participation activities in the past 12 months: number of attendances at Chapter or ALA events; achieving a CLM; signing up to take the CLM; each potential new member brought to Chapter or ALA events; each current Business Partner met with outside of an event and each Business Partner brought into the Chapter or ALA as a sponsor. For those members outside the Greater Phoenix area, this includes attending events via Facebook Live. There is no limit to the amount of entries submitted.

Scholarship recipients MUST attend the majority of the Conference sessions and events included in the conference, except in the case of a work or personal related emergency. Recipients who do not currently serve as a Committee Chair or ALA Board Representative, will be required to write an article for the Chapter website.

To qualify for any of the drawings you must be an active member and have not won a scholarship in the past two years. You will be entered into all categories that you qualify for. Limit of one scholarship per person. Submit your application to Sharon Williams at swilliams@gblaw.com. The drawing will be held at the May 23rd Chapter Education Lunch. You need not be present to win.
