TLA Conference Internship Program Deadline Approaching

TLA Conference Internship Program Deadline Approaching | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

Each year, the Tennessee Library Association selects interns to assist with its annual conference. Being a TLA conference intern provides a wonderful opportunity to network with colleagues, develop professional contacts and experience the TLA annual conference. Conference interns complete four hours of work at the conference as assigned by the TLA Scholarship Committee in exchange for waived registration fees for the TLA annual conference, a free ticket to the All-Conference Reception,  a $100 stipend to be used as desired to defray costs of attending the conference and formal recognition at the conference.  

 

DEADLINE for applications is Jan 31!

TLA Annual Conference 2017 - Tennessee Library Association

TLA Annual Conference 2017 - Tennessee Library Association | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it
Online registration ends at 5:00 PM CST on Wednesday March 29.

 You’re thinking “Oh my, what’s a librarian to do?” Well, you have two options: 1. You could go ahead and register (You do have a bit of time left.), or 2. Wait until the conference starts and register on-site. 

 Fair warning: if you wait for on-site registration there is a chance the luncheon and reception options will be sold out. You know you don’t want to miss Intellectual Freedom Fighter and LJ Mover and Shaker Alison Macrina, Giving Design’s David Baker and having your picture made while participating in the reception’s conga line! It’s a triple crown of awesomeness! 

Please join us in Knoxville.
