Members, Family and Friends Program
OSA is committed to making participation in the Society rewarding and enjoyable for everyone in the OSA community - including members, volunteers, customers, spouses, and family members. The OSA External Relations Advisory Group, launched in January 2008, focuses on developing strategies, programs, and activities designed to enhance your interactions with OSA.
Grants of up to four hundred dollars (US$ 400) per family, per calendar year, are available to assist OSA members who are bringing children to selected OSA-sponsored meetings or conferences or who incur additional expenses in leaving them at home (e.g., extra day care or babysitting services). Grants may be used for a single meeting or may be divided between eligible conferences during the calendar year.
Grant recipients are solely responsible for their choice of child care provider. OSA does not endorse any child care providers.
