Council of Chapters Traveling Course

2014 Traveling Courses

The Council of Chapters Traveling Courses provide low cost, local courses for ASA Chapters. The Council of Chapters sponsors this activity by covering speaker travel expenses and honoraria. The Chapter in turns covers advertising, local arrangements (including hotel and local travel), course materials, and registration (the greater of $25 for each attendee or $500 to go back to the Council of Chapters).

The Traveling Course committee, made up of at least one member of each of the six Chapter Districts and ASA staff liaison, chooses the local Chapters and works with the speakers and Chapters to select dates for each course. Each course is typically given more than once in one trip by the speaker. The courses are often awarded according to geographical proximity to keep travel cost low, with special consideration given to smaller Chapters and Chapters that have not had a traveling course recently.

The 2014 course offerings cover the entire year. To allow as much flexibility in planning, the best use of the presenter's travel time and Chapter funds the deadline for application is January 15, 2014. Applications may be submitted throughout 2014 but courses will be subject to speaker availability and Travel Course funding.
