CS-SIS ABA TECHSHOW Travel Grant Opportunity
Being aware of technology and expanding our network is so important to being able to effectively and efficiently accomplish our work as information professionals. Attending and participating in ABA TECHSHOW is an opportunity to increase knowledge and awareness of the topics and tools in legal technology. If you want to read more about ABA TECHSHOW 2020, visit https://www.techshow.com.
To facilitate attendance, the CS-SIS Executive Board has established a travel grant for ABA TECHSHOW. The application deadline is January 6, 2020, so don’t delay! We set the deadline early so that the grant recipient can register in time to take advantage of the early bird registration pricing.
You may be wondering how, after attending ABA TECHSHOW, you can get more involved. Perhaps you might be interested in joining the ABA Law Practice Division. With the ABA staff, LPD is responsible for organizing ABA TECHSHOW. By joining you may get a discount on ABA TECHSHOW registration in the future. You might also consider proposing a program for the next ABA TECHSHOW. Submitting a proposal doesn’t ensure that you will be selected by the ABA TECHSHOW Planning Board to speak, but it doesn’t hurt. I usually Tweet about the proposal deadline and post on the CS-SIS Blog when proposals are being accepted. If you visit the ABA TECHSHOW 2020 Faculty page, you will find several CS-SIS members who are speaker at ABA TECHSHOW this year, including Kenton Brice, Debbie Ginsberg, Jennifer Wondracek, and myself.
Take advantage of the opportunity to apply for the CS-SIS Grant! If you are not a CS-SIS member, consider joining! The CS-SIS is always looking for new members dedicated to serving all the information needs of their users with the aid of developing technologies.
