Reminder: Claims for Travel Assistance to CAC Conference
TORONTO, May 24-26 2006

To those who attended the CAC conference and intend to submit a claim for travel reimbursement, could you please make sure it reaches me by June 23. A form was available at the conference. If you need another copy, please let me know.

The grant from SSHRC will enable us to reimburse a portion of your airfare. Unfortunately we are not in a position to make any reimbursement for accommodation. In an attempt to make the distribution of funds as fair as possible, the following guidelines will be observed:

Only members of the CAC in good standing will be reimbursed. (If you are not a member there is an opportunity to join at the conference, in which case a portion of your registration fee will be credited to your membership fee.) Amounts will be decided in accordance with the SSHRC guidelines, taking into account distance travelled, fare levels, and the needs of students and others with limited incomes.
