Andornot strongly believes in the value of attending conferences to foster professional development. We attend events across Canada and the United States all year long to learn about new trends and technologies, meet with clients, and share our expertise with like-minded folks.
Last year, we introduced the Andornot Professional Development Grant, a new, annual grant to help you attend a conference or event as part of your ongoing professional development activities. Of the many excellent applications we received, Mark Goodwin of the BC Cancer Agency was selected, and attended the Canadian Health Libraries Association Conference in Edmonton.
We are very pleased to be able to offer the grant again this year, to help you attend an event in 2018.
One grant of up to $1,000 is available, with an application deadline of January 31st, 2018. The funds can be used for registration or travel related expenses. We hope that this grant will provide an opportunity for someone without access to funds from their organization to network and enrich their knowledge.
Be sure to check out our list of all the conferences and events we’re planning to attend in 2018 as well as our list of other grants and funding options that could help you with project to improve your collections.
