2013 AIIP Grenier new independent info pro award

Jennifer E. Burke wins award for aspiring independent information professional from AIIP


At the 2013 AIIP (Association of Independent Information Professionals) conference, held in Denver, CO, the gala award banquet on Saturday April 6 saw a number of presentations and awards to members recognizing their contributions to the association.

“This is the time for for honoring new and veteran AIIP members for outstanding service, mentoring, writing, and creative business potential.”

I’m pleased to say I won the Myra T. Grenier award for new and aspiring information professionals and was recognized with a certificate and conference stipend. This came after an application, essay and review by the awards committee. The award made a big difference in my ability to attend my first AIIP conference.
