Dear NAMIC Diversity Digest Readers,

 

The best way to get the most out of your NAMIC membership is to volunteer with the awesome leaders of your local chapter. 


 
Made possible through a generous gift from the Walter Kaitz Foundation, NAMIC Leadership Seminar scholarship covers 90% of the tuition. The sponsoring company will be expected to supply the remaining cost as a symbol of its commitment to that employee's growth and development.

ALL other Leadership Seminar expenses, including travel, lodging, meals and program materials, will be covered in full by the scholarship.

Apply for NAMIC Leadership Seminar Scholarship by January 31, 2018

 
As a reminder, if you're a non-member and attend a local NAMIC event, you can join on the spot and receive up to 10% off your NAMIC membership! Feel free to inquire at your next event. Please also see below for upcoming event registration and program deadlines:
 
 
Attend. Share. Read. Watch. Like. Tweet. Retweet.
