We are keeping our program costs low by subsidizing the Network Assembly, so it's helpful if your organization can cover your travel costs.
If you choose to ask for a transportation stipend, the Roundtable will reimburse transportation costs to the following limits:California/Colorado: $450Midwest: $300Boston: $250Philly: $150 DC: $50 New York: $150
Because of this, it’s in your best interest to purchase travel as early as possible before prices go up!
