Your Professional Development Expense Reimbursement (Article 16.6) is available annually but must be claimed (according to the new CA) by March 15, 2019. (Not March 31/19 as in the previous CA). You are eligible for reimbursement of expenses up to a maximum of $486 this year. Eligible expenses must have incurred between April 1, 2018 and March 15, 2019.
Allowable expenses include but are not limited to: expenditures for which you have not already been reimbursed such as conference registration fees or travel costs above those covered by other funds; membership fees to professional organizations, books and subscriptions to scholarly journals, or other expenses directly associated with teaching responsibilities or current active research or professional programs (16.6.2).
You must file an expense report through the regular channels by March 15/19 to be eligible for reimbursement. Any unspent monies cannot be carried over to the next fiscal year, so spend it if you haven’t already done so!
If you have any questions about the process or the forms to use, your Dean can provide you with needed assistance.
