Conference Travel Grants Available for ATLA 2019

ATLA offers a travel grant program to support attendance at the 2019 ATLA Annual Conference in Vancouver, BC, June 12-15. We are pleased to be able to offer these grants and encourage participation in our annual conference through the generosity of ATLA members, friends, and other organizations.
