Professional Development - Webinar Funding Requests

The Professional Development Committee invites individual librarians to submit webinar funding requests to the Committee, providing the pertinent details and cost. The Committee will evaluate the request to determine if Assembly funding would be appropriate. Factors such as: broad interest/applicability; timeliness or currency; group size limits (or not) will be considered when determining if Assembly funding would be appropriate. If the committee finds a request to be appropriate, the request would be forwarded to the Executive Committee for a decision on funding.

The Executive Committee will make decisions based on the recommendation of the Professional Development Committee, the impact of the cost on the Assembly’s finances and in consultation with the Library Administration to avoid potential conflicts or overlaps.
