As with previous years, CAN is keen to get good representation from all of our local groups. Therefore we offer travel subsidies for at least one member of each local CAN affiliated group (or from a district where no group currently exists) of up to 50% of your travel costs. The final amount will be dependent on the total amount claimed as we have a limited pool of money.
To assist with budgeting, applications should be made to CAN by 11th October - contact patrick [at] can [dot] org [dot] nz (Patrick).
There may also be additional financial sources available to help you with your travel costs:
- Many local groups use their own funds to help support group members attending the CAN Do. Contact your local group to enquire about this possibility
Directly affiliated local groups should remember also that CAN holds money for local groups from local member subs. Contact CAN's Treasurer to arrange payment to your account.
- CAN also allocates funds each year to support local groups undertaking promotional activities. Groups may apply for this to help cover travel costs for their members. Application form.
See you there!
