How to Bring a Course to Your Area

For a chapter to host a CGMP class, the following guidelines will apply:
The chapter is responsible for:

  • Sending a deposit of $595 to SGMP Headquarters
  • Securing a minimum of ten (10) paid registrants
  • Securing a location for the class
  • Paying for any meeting room, food and beverage, and audio visual costs, if applicable
  • Marketing the class by posting on the chapter website, include in the chapter newsletter, use of social media if applicable to that chapter, and inform nearby chapters 
SGMP Headquarters is responsible for:
  • Collecting the $595 and registration form from each registrant
  • Paying the honorarium of any adjunct instructor (if Education and Training Director is not available)
  • Covering the travel costs for either the Education and Training Director or adjunct instructor
  • Posting the dates on the National website, a minimum of three months prior to class dates
  • Refunding the deposit of $595 to the chapter after ten people have registered and paid
 If the chapter is unable to fill the class with the minimum of ten registrants 15 days prior to the class, the deposit will be forfeited to SGMP and placed in the scholarship fund.
