2017 Policy Conference Scholarships - OPEN THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2017
MACE has approved a scholarship opportunity for attendees of the 2017 Advocacy Alliance Policy Conference. The MACE board believes the professional development of chamber executives is of utmost importance for our members.
There is only a limited number of scholarships available. Two recipients from each of the MACE States will be selected to receive a scholarship that will cover the registration cost for the conference. ($225)
The deadline for registering for the available scholarships is September 30th, 2017. Applicants will be notified by email of the MACE Boards decision prior to October 27th, about two weeks before the conference. You need to be registered for the conference to be eligible.This means you should still register for the conference without knowing if you have won a scholarship.
