About the GLATA Research Assistance Committee

The GLATA Research Assistance Committee encourages and fosters research activity among the GLATA membership. We acknowledge that some research experience is necessary before more frequent and sophisticated research can be completed. The committee will serve three functions:

  • Consultative resource for information concerning research project merit, research design and oral/written presentation of project results.
  • Provision of annual Research Assistance grants.
  • Organize the free communication sessions (certified member and non-certified member) at the GLATA Annual Meeting and Symposium.
