St. Louis AAZK offers professional development grants to our members twice a year. If you are on our mailing list, look for emails from Professional Development Committee Chair Kelsey Thompson.
To qualify you must be a national member. If you are a local member only, sign up for a national membership at www.aazk.org and update Secretary Josh Thuman of your status change.
Applicants are judged on activity level in the chapter. If you need ideas on how to help the chapter, contact President Jeremy Martin.
