Midwest Region Chapter Innovation Grant Program Announced
The Midwest Region supports new ideas and practices to strengthen chapter programming. Toward that end, the Midwest Region board has created the Innovation in Chapters Grants to fund and encourage sharing of successful and innovative strategies, ideas, and programs among CUPA-HR chapters in the Midwest Region. The board encourages chapters to think creatively and plan for projects or initiatives that build the membership’s knowledge base. The guidelines for this grant program are fairly broad, and all Midwest Region chapters are invited to apply.

The strategic plan is posted for review on the MWR website.
