Tips on Getting Employer Support for Attending SCM16:
- Offer to prepare and deliver a short presentation and Q&A to your colleagues to share what you learn, so others in your work setting can benefit from your attendance.
- Share the on-site program book and Web site for speaker handouts with your colleagues.
- Explain what you plan to get out of attending and how that will benefit your work, organization, and patients.
- Be ready with a plan that shows who will cover for you while you’re attending the Meeting.
- Offer to share a room to reduce hotel expenses.
- Search airline tickets/transportation early to obtain the best rates
