Chapter Conclave Vouchers

The VdGSA Chapter Conclave Voucher program provides to each Chapter one $200 voucher per year, to be used by one or more Chapter members towards their Conclave fees. All Chapters are encouraged to publicize the voucher’s availability to all their members.

Requirements

Each Chapter may award one $200 Chapter Conclave Voucher per year. The Chapter may choose to split the voucher amount among multiple recipients, but the total may not exceed $200. Each recipient must be:

  • a member of the VdGSA
  • a member of that local Chapter
  • registered to attend Conclave that year

Choosing the Recipient(s)

The method used to select the recipient(s) is determined by the Chapter. This financial boost can be made available to anyone with more enthusiasm than financial resources: this includes the young, the un- or underemployed, and retirees. Each Chapter should determine need as fairly as it can. Larger Chapters might ask for letters of application; smaller Chapters might vote for candidates who express the desire to attend. These are but two of many methods.


How to Redeem the Voucher

The Chapter officer or a designated representative must send, before Conclave begins, the voucher award information to the VdGSA Treasurer. The email must include:

  • the name of the Chapter,
  • the name and contact information of the selected recipient(s),
  • and, if the Chapter has chosen to split the award, the amount for each recipient.
Note the total award by a Chapter cannot exceed $200. The Treasurer will deduct the specified voucher amount from the Conclave fees of the recipient(s).
