Members: Apply for a 2013 AAJA Sacramento Convention stipend
AAJA Sacramento is pleased to be offering stipends to help members attend the AAJA 2013 Convention, which will take place in New York City from Aug. 21-24.
The chapter board will inform recipients of their stipend amount. Because funds are limited, priority will be given to applicants who demonstrate active involvement with the chapter. Members receiving full funding from their employers or other organizations are ineligible.
The deadline to apply for the stipend is March 15, 2013. You must be an AAJA Sacramento 2013 member to apply for a stipend. Members are encouraged to take advantage the early convention registration deadline, which is April 12. Go to www.aaja.org to renew your AAJA membership and to register for the convention.
