State Member Travel Reimbursements

Each member state agency is eligible for up to a $5,000 reimbursement for travel.



NASWA recognizes that member state attendance at meetings and conferences is a critical part of recognizing its mission to enhance the state workforce agencies' ability to accomplish their goals, statutory roles, and responsibilities. 

The NASWA Board of Directors approved travel reimbursements for all member states, in good standing, to assist with travel to NASWA meetings and conferences during the 2020 association year (ending September 2020). A state member travel reimbursement account has been created for each state.
