In order to continue to expand Central’s professional development and leadership development programs throughout the entire Central region, Central offers incentives to any Central Local Association that hosts an off-site workshop in their area.

Central will arrange for a workshop presentation or presentations to hold on your chosen site. Further, Central will advertise the session and setup online registration for the participants.

Your local association will arrange for a room or rooms in a facility of your choosing. This may be a school building, a church, a community center or the like. On the day of the event you will need to setup a registration table to welcome the participants. Central will provide you with materials to handle registration at the event, including sign-in sheets and name badges. If a continental breakfast or box lunch is requested by Central, you will need to coordinate the ordering and pickup of the refreshments locally. Central will pay for the food expenses and other approved expenses.

For your association's services, Central will make monetary grants on the following basis directly to your association:

One session (equaling 60 to 90 minutes in duration)
  • $100.00 for a single workshop session;
  • $25 each, for up to two (2) additional concurrent workshops during the given session time frame;
  • Maximum = $150.00
Two sessions (equaling 120 to 180 minutes in duration)
  • $150.00 for 2 consecutive workshop sessions;
  • $25 each, for up to four (4) additional workshops during the (2) given session time frames;
  • Maximum = $250.00
Three sessions (equaling 181 to 270 minutes in duration)
  • $200.00 for 3 consecutive workshop sessions;
  • $25 each, for up to six (6) additional workshops during the (3) given session time frames;
  • Maximum = $350.00

Completion of the application will place your association in a pool of available sites for this program expansion. At this time it is not known which workshop events Central will be scheduling nor on what dates the committee intends to schedule events.

Central is appreciative of your willingness to partner with us in developing, expanding and enhancing the professional and leadership development opportunities for all Central members.
