We are pleased to announce that our Rotary District will make ten $350.00 stipends available to D5010 Rotarians who are registered as first time attendees at the District Assembly and Conference in Anchorage on May 2-5, 2019. Preference will be given to Young Leaders who apply.  
These stipends, paid with Excess Reserves, were approved as part of a proposal last year submitted by Vivian Finley of Kachemak Bay Rotary, to provide education and training for Rotarians. We are particularly interested in providing opportunity for Young Leaders (ROTEX, ROTARACT, Young Professionals) to experience a District Assembly and Conference and opportunity afterward for further leadership development and serving in a district leadership role.  
The proposal by Vivian Finley was vetted by the Excess Reserves Committee, recommended for approval by the Finance Committee, then approved as part of the 2018-2019 budget at last year's conference in Seward. 
If selected to receive one of the stipends, the awardee will be expected to submit a written Trip Report following the conference, summarizing what they learned and how they expect to apply what they have learned.  Awardees will also be asked to serve on a D5010 committee or in a leadership role serving D5010 Rotary in 2019-2020.
Stipends will be paid to the Awardees by the district after receipt of the required Trip Report and a completed District 5010 reimbursement request.
The stipend application is simple, and can be found on the D5010 website
