The Trustees of the Dr Dorothy Jordan Lloyd Memorial Trust have kindly agreed to sponsor ten young people to enable them to participate in the Annual Conference of the UK Society of Leather Technologists and Chemists, to be held on Saturday September 14, 2002, in Harrogate.

It has been increasingly difficult for companies in the leather industry to find the necessary resources, both financial and in time, to support the attendance of staff. In many cases, only senior managers are able to attend. To keep the Society relevant to tanners, it is important that ‘tomorrow’s managers’ are encouraged to participate.

The DJL Trust will cover the cost of delegate fees, overnight accommodation for one night and attendance at the SLTC dinner/dance. Travel to Harrogate will be the responsibility of the individual, although companies may wish to consider helping with this.

Any individual wishing to apply for this award should do so in writing, describing their personal background and experience in the leather industry, age, and how they would benefit personally and professionally by being a recipient of such an award. A brief conference synopsis will be required by the award recipients.
