Request Support to Attend

From your employer

For our professional members, we have created materials that you can use to request support from your employer to attend the 2021 SHPE National Convention.

We hope these documents will help you persuade your manager that the SHPE National Convention is an invaluable experience that will make you a stronger employee.

Also, if your employer might be interested in sponsoring the event, please see our 2021 Opportunities brochure.


From your school

For our student members, we have created a letter from the CEO that you can share with your Advisor or Dean to request support from your college or university to attend the 2021 SHPE National Convention.

This letter emphasizes the benefits of the convention for students, as well as, the safety measures SHPE has put in place for the event. For California students, it also addresses the state-funded prohibition on travel to Florida.
