Aiming to support LASA members participating in the LASA2020 Virtual Congress and considering the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic among its associates, LASA is pleased to provide subsidy for childcare services to all registered participants.
LASA will subsidize the cost of childcare of LASA2020 accepted participants who need this service for their children during the time of their active participation as organizer, chair, discussant or paper presenter at the Virtual Congress.
Reimbursement will be provided at the rate of US $8.00 per hour for one child, and US $10.00 for two or more children, for a maximum of 10 hours.
LASA’s maximum responsibility per family will be $80.00 for one child and $100 for two or more children. A parent who bills LASA for childcare must be a 2020 member of the Association and a registered participant with an active role in the LASA2020 Virtual Congress. Children must be between 6 months and 12 years of age.
To receive reimbursement, the parent must submit the original bill from the caregiver, with the name(s) of the child(ren), and the dates and hours of the service, to the LASA Secretariat on or before July 15, 2020.
