Check out gpop.ca for time-sensitive information on GPOP’s $500 grant, created to help a member who otherwise may not have had the opportunity or sufficient resources to attend GPOP’s AGM and Conference. GPOP also offers two awards for members to recognize Distinguished Service and Professional Achievement. Please take a few minutes to review the criteria and consider applying or nominating a deserving colleague. Deadlines are in place!
One of the priorities of the Governance and President’s Office Professionals (GPOP) is to raise awareness of our organization by encouraging participation through Board or Committee work, on-line networking, sharing of best practices or attendance at our AGM and session at the annual CICan Conference.
Recognizing the challenges that can be associated with conference travel, the GPOP Board of Directors is once again offering an annual $500 grant to be awarded to a colleague (payable to their institution) attending GPOP’s AGM and Conference session, to be held prior to the Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) annual conference in Ottawa, from April 30 to May 2, 2017.
The grant will provide financial assistance to enable a member who otherwise may not have had the opportunity or sufficient resources to attend GPOP’s AGM and Conference. In addition, CICan has generously agreed to waive the GPOP Registration fee to supplement this $500 award for the recipient.
Attached you will find the application that can be completed and submitted by Friday, February 10, 2017.
