Spring Conference Public Entity Scholarships
In an effort to provide VAPRIMA members with an opportunity to further their risk management education, the VAPRIMA CHAPTER has established an Educational Scholarship Fund. With the economic challenges that public entities across the country are facing, professional development has taken a hard hit. This Scholarship Fund will support chapter government members with a $500 scholarship to attend the 2016 Spring Conference.
The chapter will award two (2) scholarships to chapter members to attend the 2016 Spring Conference in Virginia Beach, VA, May 19-20, 2016. The scholarship will include a complimentary conference registration with two nights lodging at the Hilton Garden Inn Oceanfront. Scholarship recipients can attend the conference sessions, meet and learn from vendors and suppliers and network with public sector risk management professionals from across the country.
Deadline: May 4, 2016
