Dear [Supervisor’s Name],

I’m requesting approval to attend Movement Makers: National Active Living Summit in Richmond, VA, May 17-19.

What is Movement Makers?

Movement Makers is two full days of how-to sessions and panel discussions that are focused on helping organizations and individuals implement practical on-the-ground changes to make their communities more active. Movement Makers is designed for leaders in the active living movement who want to change people’s health outcomes through programs, policy changes, and infrastructure improvements.

Here are the takeaways

Movement Makers will go beyond the academic studies and will help community health advocates who are interested in making a lasting difference through increased physical activity in area schools, workplaces, and throughout their communities. Expect to hear from engaging and informative speakers who will be covering a wide variety of topics ranging from health equity to workplace wellness to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. I’ll hear stories about policies changed, advocacy wins, innovative school initiatives, and more.

In between sessions, I’ll have the opportunity to network with leaders from the active living movement, creating new partnerships and developing new resources that will help move our work forward.

I’ll be able to apply what I learn at Movement Makers to the following projects:

  • [Project 1]
  • [Project 2]
  • [Project 3]
