Applications are accepted at any time on a first come first serve basis. They should be mailed to the RMD-IAI Secretary. The applications will then be reviewed by a special committee, appointed by the current President, to determine all the eligibility requirements have been met. Submission of an application is no guarantee that a reimbursement will be made.
Applicants will be notified if they are not approved due to lack of available funds, class content, or because the member is not in good standing.
Only members in good standing of the RMD-IAI are eligible. A member in good standing is one who is current with his/her dues.
The reimbursement period runs from January 1 until December 31 of each year or until the reimbursement money for the current period is exhausted.
