RE: Request for Funding — 20XX QATC Annual Conference

I’d like to attend the 20XX QATC Annual Conference in Nashville, TN occurring on INSERT DATE HERE.

I have been looking for a conference that would offer me a place to find the latest information  on quality assurance and training trends and technologies in the contact center.  I have researched  this conference and found testimonials that provide me with the type of information that I think  can take our training and quality program to new levels.  This aligns directly to my job with sessions that are applicable to everyday activities in our contact center.  I would have the opportunity to network with my QA and training peers and discuss the issues facing me in my day-to-day tasks.   I would also be able to see the latest in quality and training technologies in the Sponsor Showcase at the conference.

I am very impressed with the benefits these organizations have seen from their conferences.   For example, here are quotes from individuals that have attended the conference in the past:

  • “Thanks for a great experience – the time and dollars spent to attend this conference were a wise investment and I’m seeing the return already.”
  • “This conference and the stay was more than I could have expected. I learned SO much info from attending and I cannot wait to put some of those items I learned into use.”
  • “I am so glad I was able to attend this event.  I walked away with several ‘nuggets’ and many new contacts. I plan on sharing my ‘Quick Hits’ with my VP as soon as possible so he can realize the ROI and I'll be able to attend again!”
  • “I really enjoyed the conference. I have already shared with my leadership what I learned. I am implementing some of it into my 4th quarter goals! 

The cost for the conference is $(Insert your total request here). I would also like to recommend the following associates also attend this conference along with myself.  (Number of participants including people from other departments). The cost per person is just $(Enter amount). I can’t think of a more cost-effective way to improve our quality and training programs by attending this conference and joining the organization to take advantage of the networking opportunities, educational programs, online forums, and other resources QATC provides throughout the year.

I hope you agree that this is a productive activity for our staff and that you will fund the full $(Restate amount) requested.

I’ll be happy to meet at your convenience to discuss the details and to provide any additional information you need to grant this request.
