The CDN board sets aside $3,000 annually to support CDN members to attend conferences in which they represent CDN in some way.
$2,000 of these funds are allocated in amounts up to $500 increments to support CDN members presenting or receiving an award at a national conference or at MidWest ACE. This money is allocated on a first-come basis. If your proposal to present at a conference has been accepted or you have received an award, please forward the acceptance letter to the CDN chair along with a short written request for an amount up to $500 to help fund your conference registration.
$1,000 is allocated in amounts up to $500 increments to help support CDN members representing CDN at Recruiting Trends or the Hire Big 10 Consortium (Allerton) conference. This money is also allocated on a first-come basis. If you plan to attend either of these conferences, please send the CDN chair a short written request for an amount up to $500 to help fund your conference registration.
A CDN member can only make one professional development funding request per year.The CDN board has final approval of these requests and once the $3,000 is spent for the year, no more requests can be considered. If you have any questions please contact the chair.
