MMA will award professional development funding to members. 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.
The grant has an open enrollment, but members need to be aware that the applications are only reviewed 4 times a year. Due dates for applications are December 1st, March 1st, June 1st and September 1st. It takes at least 15 days to review applications, so plan accordingly.
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.
