The purpose of this award is to assist the NHSLMA Conference Chair to attend (on alternate years), the AASL Fall Forum and the AASL National Conference and Exhibition, as well as the midwinter and annual meetings of the ALA. This will also provide the grantee with the opportunity to attend the AASL Affiliate Assembly.
The financial support provided from the award will help to cultivate leadership skills that will serve NHSLMA as well as foster prospects to become involved at the regional and national level.
This is an amazing gift from Susan Ballard and I am flattered and honored to be the first recipient. We are so fortunate as a state to have this amazing (and incredibly funny) woman as a resource to us. I look forward to using this opportunity to benefit NHSLMA and our profession.
