Frequently Asked Questions
The goal of the ACCESS CSSN program is to provide crowd-sourced opportunities to meet the needs of the community, to engage community organizations and members in this process, and to be inclusive and collaborative. Financial incentives are available to support a number of activities: trainings, participation in community discussion forums, adding CI links via the CSSN Community Engagement program (CCEP). Opportunities for active and up-and-coming leaders in our community to participate in advisory roles are also available through serving on the CCEP Grant Committee, Ask.CI Committee, or MatchPlus/Premier Committee.
The ACCESS Support team looks forward to working with the community to further develop the CSSN. Contact us for more info or sign up here.
The CSSN Community Engagement Program (CCEP) is accepting applications for travel support ($500-$2500) for CSSN members to recognize helpful contributions to the community. There are two ways to participate in the program:
1. Community Grant submissions to create new documentation, videos, tutorials or live events which must be approved before work is started. Submissions are reviewed once a month by the community grants committee.
2. Community Contribution Rewards where the submitter contributes first and then applies for a reward. Submissions are reviewed once a month by the Ask.CI committee.
