sponsor one person to attend the LIANZA Centennial conference: At the
Edge -- Te Matakāheru. This will be held from 28 November - 1 December
2010 in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Sponsorship will cover the registration fee and reimbursement of up to
$500 for travel and accommodation costs.  

To apply, please write 1-2 paragraphs stating your reasons for
for sponsorship, the year you last attended a LIANZA conference, your

confirmation from your employer that, if successful, you will be given
leave to attend. You must be a CatSIG member to apply (or be willing
