The Classified Staff Development Committee has established a travel allowance for classified staff for work-related travel such as conferences, conventions, meetings, seminars, workshops, etc. The maximum amount to be reimbursed is $200.
How to Apply for Funds
- Fill out a
Travel Authorization form, and also include the
Request for Staff Development Funding form. Attach copies of any supporting documents (such as program descriptions or registration forms). Keep copies of everything for your file.
- Get the necessary signatures from your supervisor and forward the
Travel Authorization form and
Request for Staff Development Funding form to Caroline Tippins in staff development. The travel expenditure must first be approved by the Classified Development Committee. The vice president and president will sign the forms after committee approval. Do not make any nonrefundable reservations or buy tickets until your request has been approved, unless you are prepared to pay for expenses yourself.
- After you receive notification that your travel authorization has been approved, make your reservations and go. Have a great time, and keep your receipts!
- To receive your reimbursement submit an expense voucher along with receipts to accounts payable/fiscal services within two weeks after you return. You will not be reimbursed if you do not submit an expense report, and your allocated funds will be returned to the staff development budget for someone else to use.
