The PROTEC17 Professional Development Fund is designed to encourage and support the ongoing education and professional development of our members.
An annual fund of $10,000 will be made available each year for awards on a first-come, first-served basis to individual members seeking monetary resources for job-related, continuing education opportunities, such as seminars, classes, workshops or conferences that are not covered by their employer or another party. Due to financial restrictions, we cannot reimburse for travel expenses related to work travel. Individual awards are available in amounts of up to $200 per member until the fund is depleted for the year. The award operates on a reimbursement basis, so qualifying documentation must be provided to meet our financial regulations. All eligible members are encouraged and welcome to apply!
To view eligibility requirements and/or to apply, please find the application HERE. Questions? Please contact Deidre Girard, PROTEC17 Communications Director.
You may also want to check your individual contract for additional professional development benefits. Several of our contracts (Portland, King County, etc.) offer similar benefits for members in those jurisdictions.
