APA Travel Subsidy Forms now Available for Block Booking Meeting

October 17, 2018 | APA’s annual Block Booking Meeting is an important event that provides opportunities for networking, programming, professional development and information sharing. We recognize some individuals and organizations may find it difficult to participate in the meeting because of limited resources and/or long travel distance. This year, APA is offering travel subsidies to members on an as needed basis to promote participation and reduce barriers for members wishing to attend.

Funds are limited and not all costs will be covered. We encourage members who fit the criteria below to apply. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, November 7, 2018. Applications will be assessed once the deadline has passed and successful applicants will be notified by Friday, November 9, 2018.

Travel Subsidy Criteria

- Organizations must be a member of APA in good standing;

- Organizations must be located more than 150 kms from Halifax;

- Priority may be given to first-time attendees;

- One subsidy per organization;

- Finally, special circumstances will be considered.
