I’ve attached a couple reports from Kathleen Kramer that have student branch contact info and membership numbers. If you see that the contact info is out of date, please ask the branch to report their current information. See membership_services/ membership/students/branches/ officers.html for the reporting links.
Quick summary of the region reimbursement policy for this meeting: the region will reimburse travel costs for one officer per section. The region will also reimburse for two student members or one student and branch adviser per student branch, unless more are approved by Tom in advance. Reimbursement will include one hotel night; additional nights need to be approved by Tom in advance. This is all explained in more detail in the attached “Save the Date” email.
As always, if you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
