Attention Coos County Trustees: Travel Reimbursements Available
Honoring Lillian Edelmann

NHLTA is dedicating some of the Lillian Edelman Memorial Fund to support Coos County trustees who wish to attend the 2019 Spring Conference on May 29 in Manchester. We are offering $50 to each trustee from Coos County to cover their travel costs (including gas, tolls, parking fees, overnight expenses).  
 How to apply:
  1. Submit an application for a Mildred McKay Scholarship to cover the full conference registration fee. You’ll find application information and the form HERE
  2. On the application form, state that you also want to apply for an Edelmann travel expense reimbursement. No need to submit any expense vouchers—the money is yours to spend however you need to defray your expenses. If several trustees choose to carpool, each is eligible for the scholarship and travel reimbursement.
NHLTA has allocated $500 for the travel reimbursement fund, and if we receive more than 10 applications, the winners will be chosen by lottery. Applications deadline is May 10. Recipients of the travel funds will receive a check immediately following the conference.
That’s all there is to it! We sincerely hope many of you will take advantage of this opportunity. Lillian was a trustee in both Twin Mountain and Dalton, and valued trustee education, so we thought this would be a great way to honor her memory.
