Include relevant information such as workshop/conference dates; publication titles, etc.
Here are some of the items that can and can not be supported by FSD funds:
-- equipment purchases are not to be supported by FSD funds.
-- course books can be purchased with FSD funds if the course relates to a person’s current job description. All books that are purchased using FSD funds become the property of Cooperative Extension and the books are to be made available to other staff in the local office or PLT. These books must be left behind when the staff member leaves Cooperative Extension.
-- Magazine subscriptions are acceptable and every effort to share this resource is strongly encouraged.
-- Professional dues or memberships may be supported by FSD funds if a membership results in the ability to secure a professional development resource (e.g. professional journal or newsletter) at a reduced cost.
-- Faculty and professional staff may use their FSD funds to cover travel expenses incurred while carrying out activities approved as part of their sabbatical plan.
