WSMTA Small Chapter Workshop Assistance

  • Guidelines

    1. A chapter with 25 of fewer members is considered a small chapter and is eligible for WSMTA assistance.
    2. Application for workshop assistance must be submitted to the WSMTA Executive Manager by June 1, 2018 for workshops between June 30 and October 20, 2018. For workshops between October 20, 2018 and January 31, 2019, the deadline for submitting an application is October 1, 2018.
    3. WSMTA will assist with up to one-half of the workshop cost, up to $500.
    4. The sponsoring chapter will provide room and board for the clinician, if necessary, unless the workshop is being held in conjunction with adjudications.
    RECOMMENDATIONS to be considered for negotiating the clinician's fees:
    1. Would the clinician agree to present a workshop in conjunction with chapter adjudications, so that travel and per diem would already be paid by WSMTA?
    2. Does the Clinician list a flexible fee schedule, such as TBA (to be arranged)?
    3. Could students and/or teachers have master lessons with the technician? Guaranteeing a minimum number of hours might be an incentive to accept a lower workshop fee, since the overall fees would serve as compensation.
    4. If the clinician is employed by an educational institution, would the institution be willing to subsidize the employee's fee or travel expenses?
