In addition, traveling staff who carpool with a colleague attending a workgroup meeting may also attend a workgroup meeting besides the director meeting. You may or may not get to choose the workgroup meeting you attend, this is dependent on attendance numbers. This is optional and made available in case those who traveled as a group need a work activity. If this applies to you, please speak to your supervisor for approval.

Hotel and travel

When and how do I reserve a hotel room?

Hotel room reservation information was emailed to Local Agency Directors in January. Directors are responsible for reserving rooms for their staff. Room reservations must be made by March 21, 2020, in order to receive the discounted rate. Please reach out to your Director if you have questions. 

Please note that hotel room rates and funding included in local agency contracts are based on double occupancy. You have the option to book single occupancy rooms, however, your agency will be responsible for the additional cost.

Who is eligible for hotel reimbursement? 

Hotel accommodations were included in local agency contracts. This includes hotel stays both the night before and the night of the main meeting. Please reach out to your Director if you have questions.

Please note that hotel room rates and funding included in your contracts are based on double occupancy. You have the option to book single occupancy rooms, however, your agency will be responsible for the additional cost. 

How will travel costs (hotel, mileage, food, etc.) be reimbursed?

Hotel stays are not reimbursed the night of the special workgroup meeting on Wednesday, April 22  since these meetings end before noon. 

All costs will be reimbursed through your local agency, not through the State Office. Therefore, please follow your local agency’s policies and procedures regarding reimbursement. Please note that the State Office is not requiring tax exemption for the hotel room reservations, however, this may be a requirement of your local agency. Please consider carpooling.

Who should I contact if I have more questions concerning travel or funding reimbursement?
