Conference Funding Assistance available from the East Region EMS & TC Council
February 26, 2018


The East Region Training and Education Committee have allocated funds to support conference registration fees to providers from our Region. While the budget does not allow enough to support ALL providers who would like to attend a conference, we recognize there is a need for funding support and wish to assist as many as we can. We are sorry; we are unable to support costs for travel, lodging, or meals.

The Regional Council has determined funding for two (2) Providers from each County Council area with the priority for funding to go to the Rural/Volunteer provider. If you have received funding in the past please do not hesitate to make your request; it will be considered if there are no requests from providers who have not been the recipient in past.

There are three opportunities available:

  • Northwest      Rural Health Conference, Spokane, March 26-28, 2018

  • The      Summit, Coeur d’Alene, April 26-28, 2018

  • Inland Northwest Trauma Conference, Spokane, April 23, 2018

This year the process for recipients to receive funding will be done as a reimbursement for your attendance.

The Council will reimburse up to $250.00 for proof of payment and certificate of attendance to:

  • Northwest Rural Health Conference
  • The Summit

The Council will reimburse full registration fee for proof of payment and certificate of attendance to:

  • Inland Northwest Trauma Conference

Next steps:

  • Complete the attached form and submit to Rinita Cook, by March 12, 2018 indicating which conference you would like support for. You will be notified by March 16, 2018 of the status of your request and provided the reimbursement form to be submitted after you have attended the conference.

Reimbursement will ONLY be provided to those providers who have submitted a request and been approved as a recipient prior to the conference dates.

If you have any questions; please contact Rinita Cook,  or 509-664-4032.

Thank you, 

Rinita Cook, Executive Director

North Central and East Region EMS Council
