Internationally Funded Visits (taken from the RMT Handbook)
The Education Coordinator, in conjunction with the Membership Coordinator, is responsible for scheduling the internationally funded visits. Eighteen (18) internationally funded education visits to chartered chapters is allocated to each region (each fiscal year). The focus of internationally funded visits is in-Region personnel providing education in both the musical and administrative areas, membership development, assessment of the health, stability and/or needs of the chorus, building relationship and connection with regional choruses and their members, and for discovering and developing potential leaders. Persons outside the region (faculty, judges, etc.) are not eligible to be reimbursed using internationally funded visits.
Each member of the regional management team has differing areas of expertise, the region will determine which of the coordinators or her in-Region designee will make each visit. (This does not mean you can't request a regional facilitator or educator. It means you need approval. Use of Regional Faculty is encouraged, but you aren't limited to them.)
The form linked here for use in internationally funded visits includes a request for reimbursement. To receive prompt reimbursement for internationally funded visits, please comply with the following:
- Always use the appropriate funded visit form.
- If a designee is assigned to make the visit, the form must be signed (approved) by the appropriate coordinator (Education Coordinator or Membership Coordinator) before being forwarded to international.
- Round-trip ground transportation is reimbursed at the mileage rate approved by the International Board of Directors for the current fiscal year.
- When considering funded visits, please note that hotel nights and food are not included as part of reimbursable expenses.
