I was happy and honored to get an email from Anne Ackerson today. She is the Executive Director of the Council of State Archivists (CoSA).

Her letter read… “Dear Felicia, On behalf of the CoSA Awards Program Committee and the Board of Directors, I am pleased to inform you that you have been chosen to receive a CoSA-Ancestry.com Leadership Award. You will receive an award check of $1000 toward professional development to be completed between November 1, 2014 and October 31, 2015.

As per the terms of the award, you will be expected to attend the annual CoSA Work Session in Austin, TX next summer to make a short presentation about how you used the award and what impact it is making on your career.  Reimbursement for your registration and travel to the CoSA Annual Meeting will be underwritten by CoSA and Ancestry.com up to $1500. 

The award check in the amount of $1000 will be mailed to you before the end of this month.

We thank you for your interest in this new program and we know that you will put the award to excellent use. Congratulations!

Best,
Anne”

I just realized CoSA has a WordPress site and started following as of five minutes ago. A big thank you to my director and agency head for nominating me for the award.  I’ll start researching to see how I would like to spend this money when I come back from San Diego. Looks like I’m headed to Austin in 2015 as well.
