Engage Members through Technology with a Local Section METT Grant - Apply by October 15!

Discussion created by Aviva Westheim on Sep 13, 2017

The Committee on Local Section Activities (LSAC) is offering a new grant opportunity for local sections this Fall. This grant program, "Local Section Members Engaging Through Technology, or simply "METT", broadens the aims of last fall's pilot "Virtual Event Participation Grant" beyond a single event. METT's purpose is to assist local sections to harness technology to further engage members to fulfill section's goals and activities, and to improve member recruitment efforts.

 

METT Funding Guidelines & Procedures

Local Sections can request funding of up to $2,000 per application. Only one application is permitted per local section. Reviewers are looking for specificity in budgets. You can use these linked sample budgets (A and B) as models for how to craft your project's budget. The focus of this grant is technology, and LSAC is expecting requests to purchase and utilize tools such as software, hardware, or subscriptions, etc. We encourage local sections to limit food expenses within 25% and venue rental costs within 15% of the total amount requested from LSAC.

 

The submission deadline is 11:59 pm Eastern time on October 15, 2017.
