2012 Chapters Workshop to be held at the Conference Venue on the afternoon of October 24th, 2012 (the day before the conference)
We plan to start with a 1.5 hour session including an overview of the chapter handbook. This session will be video taped and available for chapter leaders to use in their local chapters (or to be viewed by those unable to attend). The second part of the workshop will be a roundtable discussion on regional issues and challenges, with a goal of working together to create solutions. If you are interested in participating in either of these workshops, please register for the conference and select this workshop, please register for the Conference and select the optional session “chapter leaders workshop” as part of the registration process. Remember that conference attendance is free for current chapter and project leaders.

Priority of sponsorships will be given to those not covered by a sponsorship to attend a previous workshop. Additionally, we are looking for new or struggling chapter leaders who need assistance kick starting their chapter.
When you apply for funding, please let us know *why we should sponsor you*. While we prefer that chapter leaders use their own chapter’s funds before requesting a sponsorship, this is not a requirement for application.
If your chapter has fund but will not be using them to sponsor your attendance, please include why you will not be using the funds for this purpose (i.e. what are the other plans for those funds?).
