SEIU Local 517M is in the process of establishing its own scholarship program. The parameters for the new scholarship haven’t been decided. Volunteers are needed to serve on a new committee to set up the structure, criteria and awarding of this new scholarship program. We are in need of committee members to represent School and Local Government Regions 1 and 3, and also the Scientific and Engineering and Technical bargaining units.
The Local 517M annual golf outing will become a fundraiser for this new scholarship fund. The committee members would also assist in the planning, fundraising and running of the golf outing which is scheduled for August 11, 2017.
With the loss of the International’s scholarship program, here is an opportunity that will focus on 517M members and their children as they prepare for their areas of college education.
If you are interested in serving on this new committee, please contact Dave Corrie at firstname.lastname@example.org. The committee will begin meeting sometime in early 2017.
