This seems a good idea. Be sure to check with Elaine to see if there is any reason the SIG cannot spend funds in this manner.

The first criteria would be that they agree to attend the Summit. Perhaps have the membership dated to begin at that time.

Beyond that criteria, perhaps a letter of application explaining why they want to become a member of STC and attend the Summit.

Subject: [Academic-discuss] Student Volunteers at STC Summit

Hey colleagues,

As you know, student volunteers are invited to the STC Summit to assist with logistics and otherwise generally help out. This year, we are short on the number of student volunteers needed. One of the sticking points is that such volunteers need to be STC Student Members. For many of the students even the discounted $58.50 student membership fee is out of their meager education budgets.

I propose the Academic SIG sponsor 2 (two) student memberships so that the Summit can have at least 2 more student volunteers attend. The students get a lot out of the Summit, are able to attend sessions and network with the SIGs, especially ours, and it's a great opportunity for us to bring students into the fold as they are starting their Technical Communication careers.

Do I have your approval to spend a total of $117.00 of our SIG budget for these two sponsorships? Upon what criteria do you want to select these students?

Further, does anyone want to volunteer to be the Academic SIG treasurer, or hold another office in our group? 😊

Many thanks for your thoughts on this.
