Tours are organized to benefit existing members and Chapters but can also be effective in generating membership and encouraging new chapter formation. Up to five DLTs in each Region can be supported each year. Funding is provided to enable a lecturer to address multiple groups on a lecture tour. Individual lectures are not funded. Tours involve a series of lectures, addressing at least three groups in three separate locations within reasonable geographical proximity to each other. “Grassroots” organizers may be Chapters or Sections, local conference organizers, or even a group of members in an area where no ComSoc chapter exists. Organizers work with their Regional Director, who facilitates arrangements and recommends the tour to the Director- Membership Programs Development. Final approval is the responsibility of the Director - Membership Programs Development. Lecturers are approved by him/her in conjunction with the appropriate Regional Director and, when needed, the Vice President - Technical Activities. All arrangements must be made in advance with local sponsoring groups. At least two months lead time is recommended to allow local groups time to advertise. Funding is provided, as required, to cover the lecturer’s travel expenses. Living expenses, such as lodging and meals, plus transportation to and from the airport, are generally the responsibility of the local Chapter.
