Education Reimbursement Program


This program is designed to subsidize training expenses for our Member Contractors through the issuance of Education Reimbursement Certificates.  These Certificates may be used to offset costs associated with participating in Local MCAKC and National MCAA Educational Events and Programs.  The intent is to reward Member Contractors who actively participate in Local MCAKC Education and Activities.

Points are earned and awarded on a company basis.  The selection or designation as to who within a qualifying company shall receive Education Reimbursement Certificates shall be at the discretion of the company’s designated representative.

One (1) Participation Point shall be awarded to a Member Contractor for each Individual who attends an MCAKC Event, Meeting, or Function.  No more than two (2) Points may be earned per Member Contractor per event.  It is the responsibility of the MCAKC Office to track the accumulated Points of each Member Contractor.

MCAKC Events eligible for Participation Points include: Kansas City Night, Board Meetings, Committee Meetings, Trustee Meetings, General Membership Meetings, Educational or Networking Offerings, MCAKC Charity Golf Outing Volunteers, or other events as approved by the Board of Directors.

After a Member Contractor accumulates (6) Participation Points, that Member Contractor will receive an Education Reimbursement Certificate in the amount of $1,000.  The Certificate expires one (1) year from the date of issuance.  No more than six (6) Certificates may be awarded to any Member Contractor in a calendar year.  At the end of each calendar year, each Member Contractor’s accumulated Participation Points resets to zero.

Certificates may be used to defer the costs for any MCAA, MSCA, PCA, NCPWB, or Local MCAKC Educational Program.  When using a Certificate(s) for Local MCAKC Educational Programs and when applicable, Completion Incentives will not apply.  Any Member Contractor may request approval from the MCAKC Board of Directors to apply a Certificate(s) to an alternate Industry Educational Event.

After attending an “Approved” Event, the Member Contractor will need to submit receipts, along with any issued Certificate(s) up to the value of the Certificate(s).  Eligible expenses may include; transportation, conference registration fees, reasonable expenses incurred while attending, and lodging.  Multiple Certificates(s) may be used to offset expenses and any “Unused Balance” will be forfeited.
