2013 Sun Region Grant to chapters:
GCC or chapter workshop
(a PDF copy of this page can be downloaded here)
Sun Region has authorized $1500.00 for 2013. The minimum number of students is 10. If by the Fall Sun Region meeting all funds have not been spoken for, chapters can request a second grant. All grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis after the GCC or workshop has been conducted.
1. Decide which GCC or workshop your chapter wants to offer to its membership.
2. Collect registration commitments within your chapter. If you have 20 registrants for a workshop or 21 registrants for a GCC (20 + 1 group leader) follow either procedure a) or b), below, depending on whether your chapter is offering a workshop or GCC to its members
A. For GCCs: Send for, and complete, the paperwork from National. Please read registration process instructions carefully. These instructions can be found on the EGA website or in the Education catalog. The completed “EGA Registration Request Form” in the Education catalog should be sent to National headquarters. National headquarters will return a separate Registration form which will include additional instructions. The chapter must submit a copy of a complete Registration (not the EGA Registration Request) form to the region treasurer, PamD, to receive a grant check for $100.00. (This grant process is completely from the GCC registration process. The chapter remains responsible for all required communications with the teacher and National headquarters.
B. For workshops: Submit a copy of the signed teacher contract to the region treasurer, Pam Doffek, to receive a grant check for $100. If for any reason the workshop is cancelled, the chapter has 60 days in which to return the grant money.
3. If in step 2 your chapter does not get the required number of registrants, then notify the Region Education Chairman at [email protected] who will see that your workshop or GCC is advertised on the region website and elsewhere for two months. Please provide a contact email address for the advertisement. (If your chapter is offering a GCC and you have at least 10 registrants, it’s appropriate to begin your National headquarters paperwork process when the advertising period begins.)
4. At the end of two months or when registration reaches 21 (whichever happens first), follow the appropriate procedure in Step 2, above.
Note: A chapter whose GCC or workshop has fewer than 10 in-chapter registrants, may advertise their choice on the region website for longer. The advertisement will remain on the website until it attracts 10 registrants or is withdrawn by the chapter or the region exhausts its grant authorization.
Please allow 6 weeks for paperwork to be processed.
Enjoy your class!!!!
