The Special Library Association Illinois Community is very pleased to announce the recipient of our travel grant for the SLA 2020 Annual Conference.
Meredith Dominguez is a MLIS graduate student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, an Army veteran, and a Senior Real Estate Appraiser with the Department of the Navy. In her awards application, she wrote:
"I would like to continue my federal service and commitment to the military after I graduate with my MLIS; the SLA Conference would be an amazing exposure to a variety of librarians and special librarianship practices that would support this goal. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to attend the conference and represent the State of Illinois and UIUC."
SLA Illinois proudly supports student engagement with our association - we're looking forward to seeing Meredith Dominguez at the annual conference in October.
