The Executive Board has reviewed the CALA Scholarship offering and has elected to 1) increase the scholarship to $600.00 (from $400) to accommodate for rising ALA conference registration fees and/or accommodate for US currency exchange and 2) extend the scholarship to include ALA ‘Specialty’ Conferences that have previously been excluded from the scholarship offering.
If you are a CALA Member in good standing and attend ANY ALA Conference (1 per CALA Fiscal year (Apr-March) max.), please submit a copy of your Conference Registration Confirmation to CALA’s treasurer , firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please join us in welcoming Nayla Mawji of Field Law as CALA’s new Financial Subsection Chair while our former chair of that subsection, Holli McVean, has moved to a Board position.
Did you know…CALA offers a $400.00 scholarship reimbursement to any CALA member who attends one of ALA’s 2016 National or Regional Conferences. The conditions are simple: Be an active CALA member, register and attend one of either of ALA’s National Conference (Spring) or ALA’s Regional Conferences (Fall/3 locations/formerly Business of Law Conference) and submit a copy of your paid ALA Registration following the event. Note: Specialty conference are not applicable. In some cases, this scholarship covers the cost of registration and is good incentive for members to speak to their firm’s about the value to both the member and their firm of attending these conferences. Reimbursement to the individual or firm that paid the registration fee can be submitted to CALA’s Treasurer, Karryn Mysyk (email@example.com).
