The purpose of these funds is to provide resources and support for members who wish to further develop and improve their supervisory skill set. They are also designed to help members stay current with best practices in their field and expand their knowledge to continue serving as excellent service providers in supervision and areas of expertise.
There are two award cycles each year:
Cycle 1: The deadline to apply for funds is June 1, 2018 for professional development activities that take place between July 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.
Cycle 2: Deadline is December 1, 2018 for January 1, 2019 – June 30, 2019.
For application guidelines and submission instructions CLICK HERE. Members can apply for up to $1500 per year.
The Professional Development Committee will review all applications and winners will be selected based on scores from the applications. All decisions are final. Winners will need to submit a detailed expense form from which a check will be cut to the MMA Supervisor. This means the money will only come after the actual event, so Supervisors will need to have funds available to cover costs until reimbursements can be sought.
