Public Sector Post President Stipends

SAME is offering to public sector Post Presidents of small and medium posts complimentary registration, airfare, and hotel stay of up to four nights. Post Presidents accepting the stipend must attend a meeting of Post Presidents the morning of Wednesday, May 23.  If a large post is unable to provide this support for its public sector Post President, we will evaluate our ability to provide a stipend to a Post President from a large post.  For details and instructions on Post President stipends, please contact Stacy Humes at shumes@same.org or 703-549-3800 ext. 122.
