Dear AEBC Members:

 

The Central Okanagan Chapter (Kelowna) has kindly donated the sum of $500 to National Office, fulfilling their commitment to assist AEBC in its efforts to support members wishing to attend this year’s AGM, scheduled for April 2018.  This offer is available to out of Province members only,  as we are confident there will be several participants representing British Columbia and we would like to assist those who have a greater distance to travel.

 

While there are already subsidies available to all chapters, this does not preclude a member already accepting such funds from sending in an application.  However, in the event that we receive several requests from those who have not yet been granted a $250 subsidy, preference will be given to those applicants. These funds are earmarked to be used for the conference planned for April 2018 and are to be allocated to one or two members who meet the requirements below.

 

Your application should include:

Weather you are a member in good standing, (this means your membership dues have been paid 45 days in advance of attending the conference.)

Weather you have attended a conference in the past.

A brief paragraph explaining why  you should be the successful applicant and how you would benefit from attending the conference

 

All applications should be sent to Chantal Oakes, President, Central Okanagan Chapter

oakes@blindcanadians.ca

no later than March 12, 2018 giving us time to review the requests and to select successful candidates.  We apologize for the lateness of this notice but we are confident we can make a difference to those who need the added funds.

 

It is our hope that this will generate interest among those who want to attend the conference and that we are able to alleviate some of the financial stresses associated with the costs of travelling.

 

On behalf of the Central Okanagan Chapter, (Kelowna) we thank you for your attention to this important matter and look forward to hearing from you.

 

Chantal Oakes
