Continuing Education / Innovative Project Grants

Innovate or Die!

We have heard this statement, we have repeated this statement, and we have come to accept the realization of the truth of this statement. Today, CACCE is announcing an opportunity for you to move from this becoming a philosophy to an action item at your Chamber in pursuing one of two grant opportunities geared toward either Continuing Education or Innovation. 

STEP 1:  CREATE  
Take an idea or concept you believe will benefit your chamber, your staff, your members, or your community and turn that concept into a project/program. Or is there a training opportunity for you or a staff member that you need help to attend? Do the research, determine the need, build a budget, and then...

STEP 2:  APPLY
Complete the Grant Application below, write a brief explanation of your project or training opportunity that includes the scope, budget, and how the project or training will impact your organization. For a project, include the factors that led to the development of the project, the desired results of the project, and how you will track the success or impact of the project. Provide an implementation plan with action steps involved and a time-frame for your project.

STEP 3:  IMPLEMENT and SHARE 
Next task is to put your concept into ACTION. If you are awarded a grant for your program or training opportunity, simply implement your project/program or attend the training, and then share the outcomes with your CACCE peers. Click the link below for the official grant application.

These grants are awarded at the Annual Management Conference.  The 2019 program is now open.  Please click the link below for more information:
