CCML Professional Development Fund

The Professional Development Fund is designed to encourage CCML members to participate in professional development opportunities. Special funds are designated to provide financial support to members who wish to attend continuing education courses and professional meetings or programs. The Education Committee reviews submitted applications. If committee members apply for funds, they are excused from the review process for that award. All applications must comply with the guidelines listed below. If equally qualified applicants are under consideration, and there is not sufficient funding for all, the application(s) with the earliest postmark(s) will be funded first. The number of awards given will be limited by the available funds. The amount of funds is determined by the CCML President and Treasurer for the current year. The total awards given for the year will not exceed $900.


  • The applicant must be a regular member of CCML for at least one year, or an emeritus member.
  • Professional Development funds are to be used for local, regional, or national educational library courses, meetings, and programs. Formal CE credit is not required.
  • Awards of up to $300 per applicant may be granted each year.
  • The award will not exceed the registration fee or charge for the continuing education course.
  • Funds are not intended to be used for meals or travel expenses unless those are the only expenses a member will incur.
  • Institutional matching of funds is not required.
  • Applications must be received by the chair of the Education Committee, four weeks prior to the course/program.

Applicant's Responsibilities:

  • Applicants receiving awards must complete an evaluation form and return it to the Education Committee chair, within two weeks of the course/program. Funds will not be dispersed until the evaluation form has been returned.
  • The evaluation form requests a brief summary and evaluation of the course, program or event that will be published on the Council Quotes blog.
