The Gasaway Consulting Group, LLC is sponsoring a $1,500 Emerging Leader Scholarship to assist with registration and travel expenses for the Symposium in the Sun. "I am a big proponent of the concept of paying it forward," noted GCG President Dr. Richard B. Gasaway. "The VCOS and the Symposium in the Sun have played a very important role in my development as a chief officer. I am delighted to be able to give back to the VCOS and help a new chief attend this world-class conference."
Emerging Leader Alumni Scholarship
The Emerging Leader Scholarship alumni understand the value of paying it forward and the value of attending the Symposium in the Sun. The alumni created this second scholarship to provide a great learning opportunity for an emerging leader. By completing the one application, you are applying for both the Emerging Leader Scholarship and the Emerging Leader Alumni Scholarship opportunities.
