Grants will fund education and training opportunities, with a maximum award determined by the Execu- tive Board and Training Committee.
The process and online application has been drafted and the program will be announced after the October board meeting at the IACP conference in Chicago.” This bequest to the FBINAA comes at a fortunate time to ensure that all chapters will have the funding to provide the top quality training for which our Association is known. At this time, it is not known if the Chapter Mini-Grants will carry Bateman’s name but all chapters receiving this money should be able to provide important training because of this legacy of Doyle Bateman.
The Chapter Mini-Grant Program applications will be vetted and recommended by the Training Committee. Funding priority will be given to Chapters whose education and training focuses on the top education and training topics that were rated a high priority or somewhat a priority by the membership as rated in the annual education and training needs assessment.
