AAUW of Colorado Leadership Fund Application

AAUW of Colorado Leadership Fund Application
Fall Leadership Conference, August 23-24, 2019
Holiday Inn, Lakewood, CO

The purpose of the Leadership Fund is to encourage first time branch leaders to attend the AAUW CO Fall Leadership Conference (FLC).  The Leadership Fund would cover the cost of registration and meals for the conference for 4 or 5 new attendees.  These awardees would come from different branches.

The state budget for this award is $500.  The 2018 FLC amounts awarded were $100 for five attendees. If the cost for the 2019 Fall Leadership Conference is approximately the same, we could give this approximate amount of funds to around 5 first-time attendees. Application and guidelines are shown below:
