Do you know someone who is new to the information profession and shows
exceptional promise for leadership, innovation and success?  Please consider
nominating one of these outstanding SLA members to receive the new SLA
Rising Star Award!

The 2009 SLA Awards and Honors Committee is currently seeking nominations
for a new award aimed at recognizing the best “up and coming” members in the
association. The deadline to submit a nomination for 2009 is *May 6*. The
inaugural class of SLA Rising Stars will be presented at SLA 2009 in
Washington, D.C.

Nominees must meet one or more of the following criteria:

   - Outstanding work and professional activities on behalf of SLA
   - Develop notable innovations on the job
   - Actively participate in SLA units and association programs
   - Promote the visibility of SLA or the value of information

The SLA Rising Star Award will be presented to no more than five information
professionals who have less than five years of both professional experience
as well as SLA membership.

Starting with the 2010 program, SLA will include the Rising Star Award in
the annual SLA Honors and Awards program, seeking out nominations along with
all other association-level awards during the fourth quarter of the year.

Please send in your nomination for the SLA Rising Star via the online form
