It is important that chapters provide new members an introduction to ASDA and the benefits of membership. Orientation events can vary from a welcome breakfast to a lunch and learn presentation to an evening cookout, but all events should educate members on ASDA. Many chapters experience funding challenges due to strict vendor policies or administrative issues that prevent them from holding local events.

Purpose of the Grant
This grant is intended to help chapters fund virtual or in-person events that promote membership and involvement in ASDA. Up to five grants of a maximum of $500 each will be awarded to ASDA chapters based on the criteria below.
