Traveling Speakers Program

The Traveling Speakers Program (TSP) enables local sections to bring OR practitioners and researchers in Canada as speakers to their local events. To keep costs in line while maximizing the CORS national profile, CORS sponsorship will be limited to 50% of the total expenses, up to a maximum of $500 per speaker or $1000 for a single event (conference, workshop). Other expenses can be covered by the local section. The program of the event must acknowledge the contribution of CORS. The president of the local section must contact the TSP Coordinator to obtain approval for funding at least one month in advance of the event date.

Payment will be made by the CORS Treasurer upon receipt of the Expense Form (PDF).

The president of the local section fills out the application form (PDF) and submits the form to the TSP Coordinator, Samira Rahimi.
