RID 2017 LEAD Together Free Leadership Track Registration Application

In previous years, the SCRID board has committed to supporting members wishing to attend the national and regional RID conferences.  We have usually offered one free registration as a door prize at the annual membership meeting each Spring. 

However, as the conference now requires a lottery for registration, the SCRID board has agreed to award one of its guaranteed registrations along with paying for the registration to a deserving SCRID member.  General lottery registration slots must be claimed and paid for by April 28th, so waiting for the annual membership meeting on May 13th is not possible.

In order to provide a fair opportunity for all SCRID members to win SCRID’s guaranteed registration slot, we have devised an application for each interested member to describe how they are best qualified to attend the conference. 

Please note the following before proceeding with the application:

  • Eligible members must be SCRID and RID members in good standing.
  • Agree to attend the conference and attend 85% of the leadership track trainings.
  • Agree to apply new leadership skills and knowledge in Southern California.
  • Acknowledge responsibility for expenses outside of registration fees (SCRID will pay for the registration fee).
  • Agree to participate in an ASL-rich language environment.

Thank you for taking advantage of this important SCRID member benefit!  Good luck!

Applications must be received by February 7, 2017.  Submit early!

The award will be announced on February 14, 2017.
