Professional Development Reimbursement
GBEA would like to pay members who have been going above and beyond to provide professional development to their colleagues. This would most likely be in the form of a video or a recorded Google Meets call. There are a few stipulations, outlined in the attached flier. Please only fill out one application per person. You can include multiple videos/calls, and will be paid accordingly.
