Call for Nominations: Thomson Reuters/Frank Bradway Rogers Information Advancement Award

The recipient receives a certificate at the association’s annual meeting and a cash award of $500 after the annual meeting.
It is required that an individual nominee be a member of MLA, or if a small group is nominated for a combined effort, that at least one member of the group must be a member of MLA.
