ASL Appendix F6: Conference and Travel Requests [ Acct. Category 5000] Audience: Staff Development Committee, Administrators, Budget Committee, PRBC Purpose: To request funding for conference attendance, and to guide the Budget and Staff Development Committees in allocation of funds. Instructions: Please list specific conferences/training programs, including specific information on the name of the conference and location. Note that the Staff Development Committee currently has no budget, so this data is primarily intended to identify areas of need that could perhaps be fulfilled on campus, and to establish a historical record of need. Your rationale should discuss student learning goals and/or connection to the Strategic Plan goal. Conference/Training Program American Sign Language Teachers Association (ASLTA) 2013-14 Request Approximately $1000 with cost of conference, travel, hotel etc. Rationale The ASLTA offers a yearly conference (2014 date and location has yet to be announced) in which ASL faculty travel from all over the nation to attend the 4-5 day conference. This is a great opportunity for professional development. I would be able to gain knowledge and learn new trends in the world of ASL teaching.
