PARAPROFESSIONAL SPECIALIST AWARD
NASIG seeks paraprofessional candidates for a grant to attend the Annual Conference. Established in 1985, NASIG is an independent organization working to advance and transform the management of information resources. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate and improve the distribution, acquisition, and long-term accessibility of information resources in all formats and business models.
DESCRIPTION OF AWARD: The purpose of the NASIG Paraprofessional Specialist Award is to provide a promising paraprofessional with the opportunity to advance his/her knowledge and understanding of information resource management by networking and interacting with a wide range of dedicated professionals working in all segments of the information supply chain. The award provides the recipient with a firsthand introduction to NASIG by sponsoring attendance at the NASIG annual conference. NASIG will pay for conference registration, three nights housing, and travel costs within North America. Conference registration includes most meals, and a stipend of $75 is intended to offset the cost of meals not included and transportation between the airport and the conference hotel. In addition, to encourage active participation in NASIG, the recipient will receive a one-year free NASIG membership.
