Key People involved in planning a Traveling Workshop (TW)

The Traveling Workshop Director (TWD) is the initial contact person requesting a Traveling Workshop, schedules the TW, chooses the Traveling Workshop Facilitator (TWF), and works closely with both the Traveling Workshop Coordinator (TWC)  and Traveling Workshop Facilitator to ensure a successful TW based on the institutions request.

The Traveling Workshop Coordinator (TWC) communicates TW information, emails the requesting institution, emails potential facilitators, introduces the Traveling Workshop Director (TWD) to the Traveling Workshop Facilitator (TWF) via email, and other duties as needed to assist in planning an effective Traveling Workshop.

The Traveling Workshop Facilitator (TWF) works with the TWD to plan the TW, facilitates (presents) the requested TW, works with the TWD regarding travel, and other duties as needed or requested for the TW to be successful.  The TWF are AMATYC members, math faculty, and administrators with an outstanding presentation record.

Traveling Workshop Cost (Example of TW on a $2,000 budget)

The TWF receives an honorarium of  $750 and a W-9 is required to process the honorarium (if there are multiple TW Facilitators, the $750 honorarium is split among the facilitators)

All travel expenses and meals of the TWF, maximum of $750 to cover expenses such as airfare,
lodging, and per diem amounts, to be paid by the requesting institution

Location of the workshop, food and supplies for participants, if applicable, maximum of $500
