To Apply for A Conference Scholarship
This year is the first year we’ve offered the chance to get a scholarship to support your attendance at conference.
The board wanted to use some of the funds from membership dues to help those markets who might not normally be able to attend conference. It’s our way of giving back some of the support you’ve given us! The idea is to encourage smaller markets, new markets, those with volunteer managers, and others who have not been to one of our conferences before (so they don’t know all of the benefits!) to attend.
We’ve received some great applications but we still have room for more!
So if you’ve wanted to attend our conference in the past but haven’t been able to for one reason or another, now’s your chance. Please don’t miss the deadline of September 26th at 5:00 PM as no applications will be accepted after that time.
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about the Scholarship Program:
WHAT DOES THE SCHOLARSHIP COVER?
The scholarship covers your conference fee (conference sessions and tours) and lunches.
WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED?
You will still need to cover your own hotel fees and dinners on your own for the duration of the conference. But we have a great discount group rate so hotel rooms at Holiday Valley Resort are only $100 per night, single or double occupancy.
CAN I COME FOR A SINGLE DAY?
No. We want you to get the full benefit of the conference along with the tours and the networking, so the scholarship covers the entire 3 days of conference sessions.
So if you’ve been meaning to fill out the scholarship application but haven’t gotten around to it: this is your last reminder. The deadline is approaching quickly.
