Unit 2 Professional Development Fund, Spring/Summer 2015

Brad WalchukGeneral

Your union has a Professional Development Fund that it has secured through collective bargaining.

This fund is intended to assist with expenses related to professional development that fall into the following four categories:

  • Conference Presentations/Participation
  • Research
  • Training
  • Teaching Materials/Resources

The deadline for applications for the spring/summer 2015 adjudication period is August 7, 2015. We should be able to issue reimbursement by the end of the month.

*Please Note* We regret to inform members that, as of September 1st, 2015, computers (e.g., PCs, laptops) and tablets will no longer be considered eligible expenses under the Professional Development Fund due to a lack of funding. As such, the spring/summer 2015 is the last period in which computers will be allowed as an acceptable item.
