Scholarship recipients are asked to make their own transportation arrangements to and from the conference. Conference planning members do not make those arrangements
. If you are having difficulty arranging transportation, we encourage you to talk to your clubhouse or contact your agency about arranging transportation. You can also post a request to United We Stand Wisconsin (email@example.com
) or the Wisconsin Association of Peer Providers (firstname.lastname@example.org
). Both public consumer forums won't arrange rides, but you can post a request and see if anyone answers.
Scholarship applicants submitting their registration forms in advance will not receive special considerations.
