Support from the SPS National Office
Thank you for agreeing to host a zone meeting at your institution. The SPS national office provides funding up to $500 to help cover the costs associated with hosting a zone meeting. Following are the requirements to receive funding:
- A letter signed by the SPS advisor requesting up to $500. The letter should briefly indicate how the money will be spent, include a detailed budget list, and must include the submitting institution's federal tax identification number. If a registration fee is going to be charged, please include it as income in the budget list. You can send your request by email to the lydia [at] aip.org (national office).
Note: SPS advisors are responsible for fulfilling these requirements. Requirements not met will incur forfeiture of future chapter funding.
- If you would like to have an SPS recruitment package sent at no additional cost, state so in the letter (this includes SPS brochures and various SPS branded items).
- Upon receipt of request, an initial installment of $250 will be sent to the advisor a few weeks before the meeting.
- After the zone meeting, a report of the meeting (3 page minimum), photographs, and a list of expenses is required in order to receive the final installment up to $250. Please take photographs of the event so that we may post them on the SPS national website or feature them in The SPS Observer; and use the photos and report in your annual chapter report. This is a nice way to communicate the success of your zone meeting to a national audience.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions... thanks!
