Thank you for nominating a Young Member (under the age of 39) to be awarded a stipend to attend the 2014 Emerging Leaders Alliance Conference, taking place November 10-11, 2014, in Reston, Va. All applications must be submitted to SAME HQ no later than July 30, 2014, using the web-based form.
Each Post is permitted to nominate one YM for the stipend. All Post nominations will be forwarded to the respective Regional Vice President (RVP). Each RVP may select one individual from among the Post nominations to represent the Region. RVP nominees (up to 16—one for each region) will then be reviewed by a panel of Fellows, from which eight finalists will be selected to attend the ELA Conference.
This is a highly-selective process, but a great opportunity for our Young Members! Again, thank you for your continued support of SAME Young Members.
