VLA Council Approves $1400 Travel Grant for JCLC 2018

The Virginia Library Association Executive Committee and Council approved a motion to provide a $1400 Travel Grant for one VLA member to attend the 2018 Joint Conference for Librarians of Color, September 26-30, 2018 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

VLA will open an application process (similar to that for our 2017 VLA Conference Travel Grant and The Innovative Library Classroom Travel Grant) in early 2018.

About JCLC: First held in 2006 in Dallas, Texas, and then again in 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri, the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color brings together a diverse group of librarians, library staff, library supporters, and community participants to explore issues of diversity in libraries and how they affect the ethnic communities who use library services.  It will be held next on September 26-30, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

More updates regarding the conference and JCLC Inc. will be forthcoming via the organization’s website.  Please visit the JCLC Inc website, where donations can also be made to support JCLC’s work to advocate for and address the common needs of librarians of color.
