Grants

Each geographical area of the NMTT may apply for a grant to hold educational forum(s) for CME credit. The amount of the grant may be no more than half of the membership dues paid by the members of that particular area: (i.e.: if Middle TN has 35 paying members; the area may not apply for more than a $350 grant [35 members at $20/member = $700 x ½ = $350.]) The grant application must be submitted by the EC area representative either by email or mail no less than 30 days before the date of the event to the NMTT fiscal committee for review. The NMTT fiscal committee will notify the area EC representative in writing either by email or mail of the review decision within five (5) business days of receipt. If approved, the treasurer will issue:

  1. A check for the dollar amount of the grant to the EC area representative; to be used for toward the cost of the educational forum(s). The EC representative must provide receipt(s) to the NMTT treasurer for funds paid toward the cost of the forum(s).
  2. A check for the dollar amount OR credit card payment for the dollar amount to the business, vendor, or speaker hosting the event. A receipt for the amount of funds paid will be issued to the NMTT treasurer.
  3. The full amount of the cost of the event either by check or credit card to the business, vendor, or speaker hosting the event. A receipt for the amount of funds paid will be issued to the NMTT treasurer. In the case of full payment by the NMTT, the EC area representative will be responsible for collecting monies from participants to refund the NMTT the cost of the event less the amount of the provided grant. Refund to the NMTT must be deposited into the NMTT account or issued to the NMTT treasurer within 15 business days of the event.

The dollar amount of the grant cannot exceed the dollar amount paid towards the cost of the educational forum(s). In the event of cancellation of the educational forum, the grant must be refunded to the NMTT within 15 business days of the cancellation notification.
