STAFF DEVELOPMENT FUND PILOT PROJECT UPDATE - November 7, 2017
The Memorandum of Agreement was approved by our members at the September 27, 2017 General Assembly. The joint committee met on October 30th to review the guidelines and forms. The new forms are now finalized and available below.
Highlighted changes to the guidelines are:
1. The Fund eligibility will reset for 2017/18, so if you accessed the Fund last year you are eligible for maximum funding this year.
2. The Individual funding maximum has increased to $1,500 (from $1,000) to be used over two years (2017/18 & 2018/19).
3. The Group funding maximum has increased to $1,000 per member to a group maximum of $5,000 annually.
If you have any questions, please contact the Local's office (780-455-2164; email@example.com).
