Half-Priced Scholarships

The membership committee is offering 10 half-priced scholarships per year to those professionals whose agencies don't pay for memberships in professional organizations. The purpose of this scholarship is to offer a reduced membership fee to professionals who have an established career for over 3 years, are motivated for career growth but must pay for their own membership. Candidates must complete an application and meet the criteria identified, including volunteering for a committee, to speak at a chapter event, recruit a new member, or offer some other specified assistance to the chapter.

Special Membership Campaign, September 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015

Help bring new members to our chapter and win at the same time. We are offering $10 gift cards to members who sponsor a new member (joined and confirmed by National). We received $249 in scholarship money from National to provide incentives for this campaign, so gift cards will be awarded until the scholarship funds run out or the January 31, 2015 deadline arrives.
