INCENTIVE GRANTS FOR SUMMER CONFERENCES
April 30, 2010
Small chapter and minority incentive grants are available for the Presidents Conference (July 19-23) and Summer Institute (Aug. 1-6). Apply by April 30. Minority incentive grants are offered to members of racial-ethnic minority groups to encourage minority leadership within the association. Small chapter incentive grants are awarded to chapters that represent a unit of 100 or fewer members for collective bargaining. Each grant pays for transportation expenses and the conference fee, which includes materials, meals and housing based on double occupancy. In addition, Summer Institute offers grants for participants in the Emerging Leaders Track and the Member Benefits Strand. The Presidents Conference offers additional grants for first-time chapter participation (available to chapter presidents whose chapter has not previously participated) and first-time presidents participation (available to new presidents from chapters of 1,000 or fewer members); the first-time presidents participation grant pays 50 percent of the shared room cost.
