AGM Bursary Application

Last year, the Chamber Group Insurance Plan, Manitoba Region, provided 2 Bursaries and they are pleased to continue the program in 2017. The Bursary program is to assist local Chamber(s) in sending a delegate to the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce Annual General Meeting.

The Chambers Plan, Manitoba Region, will provide 2 Bursaries to qualified Chamber Managers or delegates who have never attended an AGM or haven’t been to one in the past three years. The bursaries include the registration, with an allowance for hotel and travel. Please note we do not pay mileage but will accept gas receipts for reimbursements. With this announcement, Manitoba Region also shifts focus with regard to sponsorship and advertising, and more to growing local Chamber memberships, and production GROWTH.

Bursary applications are now closed.
