But how can we afford to go to UMAP???

Some schools are able to budget for staff to attend the annual  UMAP Conference, but are more financially limited.
Here are a few ideas to help:

*Ask and adult Sunday School class, UMM, or UMW,  to sponsor a staff member. If each member of the class contributes $5.00 or $10.00, this can go a long way towards covering the cost.

*Classroom "Send a Teacher to UMAP" jars. Parents want their teachers to have continuing training.  Give them the opportunity to contribute during the year.

*Coffee for UMAP. Have staff members make coffee one morning a week and perhaps bring in some baked goods for parents at drop off. A set price or donations can towards staff attending.

*Next year, put an amount in the school's budget for the conference. Each year, increase it by one registration cost.

*First time attendees: We have a deal for you! Send your director and a staff member goes for FREE! You will see the "Coupon" on the upcoming registration form.
