2019 NCWCA Chapter Rep Grant – $200 Stipend
NCWCA is awarding a $200 stipend to a 2019 member to represent our chapter at the upcoming National WCA Conference, "Bridge the Gap" in New York City. The conference will be held Feb 14-16, 2019. The awardee is expected to participate in all of the WCA events, represent our chapter at the Chapters Council meeting on Thursday, February 14 from 9:15 – 11:45 pm, and report back to the chapter on what she learned so that those who couldn't go can get a taste of the fun and excitement. The chapter rep is not required to attend the National WCA board meeting on Sunday, February 17 but may do so as an observer.
Eligibility: 2019 NCWCA members are eligible to apply.
To apply: Write not more than 500 words explaining why you should be awarded the stipend. Email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org with "2019 NCWCA Stipend" in the subject line. To the extent possible, this stipend will be awarded to a member who has not previously represented our chapter at the annual conference.
Deadline: Monday, January 7, 2019.
Notification: Elizabeth Addison, Professional Development Chair, will present her recommendation at the January 13 board retreat and she will announce the winner on January 14, 2019.
Award: The $200 stipend will be awarded after the Chapter Rep returns from the conference and provides a written report at a chapter meeting. Note: travel / lodging / conference registration arrangements and costs are the responsibility of the attendee.
