Small Chapter Incentive Grants will be awarded to small chapters with a unit size of 100 or fewer members or 200 or fewer members for Issues Conference.  Unit size is defined as the number of persons who are represented for purposes of collective bargaining. The chapter membership may be less than the unit size.
