AAUW of Colorado Leadership Fund Application

The purpose of the Leadership Fund is to encourage first time branch leaders to attend the AAUW of Colorado Fall Leadership Conference (FLC).  The Leadership Fund would cover the cost of registration and meals for the awardees.  These awardees would come from different branches, and the number of awardees would be based on the budget and the cost of FLC.
