Local Section Members Engaging Through Technology (METT) Grant
In response to COVID-19, LSAC is offering two cycles of the METT Grant in 2020 in an effort to help local sections achieve their goals through grant support for virtual events. Application deadlines are June 15, 2020 and October 15, 2020.
This grant program assists local sections to use technology to more fully engage their current membership in the section's goals and activities and to enhance their member recruitment efforts. Examples of these events could include, but are not limited to, software purchases to enable remote Local Section executive meetings, webinars, the use of ‘clickers’ to make section meetings and other events more interactive, or outings to learn about new technology pertinent to the Local Section.
- Maximum funding level: $2,000
- Applications should include specific budget information about the event and/or the proposed technology purchase(s).
New budgetary guideline
In applications, Local Sections are encouraged to keep food expenses under 20% and venue rental costs under 20% of the total amount requested from LSAC.
