Sometimes there are opportunities for you to ‘give back’ to your profession.  It might be volunteering your time and expertise on a committee or a board, it might be mentoring a colleague, it might mean attending an event or just sharing the experience.

In late November, fellow senior professionals from the Brisbane region along with accompanying new professionals shared in a special anniversary, celebrating with a small gathering on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the ALIA New Librarian’s Symposium (the first was held 6-7 December 2002).

The generous donations from that evening has meant that we have been able to fund three registration scholarships for NLS6 in February 2013 for self-funding delegates (through the ALIA Queensland Group).

I encourage you all to be generous to the profession whenever you can.  I am very much looking forward to meeting NLS6 delegates in beautiful Brisbane very soon.

….and so after much deliberation, the panel couldn’t decide on just three so we managed to squeeze in four deserving recipients of these registration scholarships. The winners are:

  • Lyndelle Gunton
  • Julie Rankin
  • Tegan Darnell
  • Ashleigh McKergow

Winners will be contacted by the committee chairs in the next few days to make arrangements.

Congratulations to these lucky ducks! And many thanks to all those who applied. We know it’s sometimes tough to self-fund to conferences and the like, however you only need to see the program and workshops on offer to know that this New Librarians’ Symposium is insanely value for money. How often do you get this good of a deal? Think of this as an investment, make the most of the experience and continue building yourself as an information professional.

Save yourself some $$, buy yourself that well-deserved end of year pressie and invest in your future before early bird registrations close at the end of December!
