>Dan--Our local tutoring association (BCTA, also known as the
>Baker College Tutorial Association) developed two years ago, after
>several years of participating in the Michigan Tutorial Association
>conferences, which pretty much focus on material for tutors
>(though sessions for professionals are always included).  BCTA
>developed a constitution, etc., and registered the group with
>the college, which entitled them to a faculty advisor (me).  With my
>first stipend, I had shirts made (in school colors) with "Baker
>College Tutor" on them.  Other than that, the funding has come from
>selling the sidewalks (actually, renting chalk and loaning the
>sidewalk for sidewalk art @ $1.00 per square), and selling test kits
>(final exam schedule sheet, three Scantrons, two presharpened #2
>pencils with erasers in a pencil-sized plastic pouch, choice of pack
>of gum or Lifesavers, and a Test Troll).  The group meets at a
>restaurant near the college one or two times per month.  Last May,
>BCTA held its very first banquet, with dinner, awards and
>entertainment, and a good time was had by all.
