NASPE 2018 Annual Meeting Agreement
The National Association of State Personnel Executives (NASPE) is pleased to cover meeting-related expenses for you to attend the 2018 NASPE Annual Meeting. As a dues-paying member for FY 2019 (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019), your state is entitled to the following for 1 person. Due to the close proximity of the annual meeting and the beginning of most states' fiscal years, it is understood that travel arrangements may need to be made prior to the ability to pay dues in the FY19 fiscal year. It is understood that if dues payments ($5,000) are not received by September 30, NASPE will ask for reimbursement of meeting expenses incurred.
NASPE will cover the following expenses (See the attached travel guidelines for more information):
1. One coach airline ticket purchased at least 21 days prior to your arrival at the NASPE Meeting. The ticket cost will be billed directly to NASPE utilizing NASPE’s travel agency, Altour. (Coach ticket only.) Your name will be forwarded to the travel agency upon receipt of this signed agreement. You must call the travel agency to make your flight reservations.
2. Hotel room and tax for three nights (single occupancy) at the Alex Johnson Hotel at the conference rate ($175/night + tax and fees). Room and tax will be billed directly to NASPE. You will be responsible for incidental expenses. You must make and secure your hotel reservations at the Alex Johnson Hotel with a personal or business credit card. NASPE will then have three nights of your stay transferred to the NASPE Master Account prior to the meeting.
3. Registration fee for the NASPE Annual Meeting. NASPE will register you for the meeting, once dues and a signed travel agreement are received. NASPE will not reimburse for additional travel expenses, including tips, airport parking or transportation in your home state, mileage, food and beverage, or any other related travel or conference expenses. All such additional travel expenses are your responsibility.
If after accepting these membership benefits, you fail to attend the NASPE meeting , you will be responsible for NASPE’s actual expenses and penalties incurred by NASPE related to the purchase of airline tickets, hotel room nights, and registration fee.
