Travel Reimbursement for Members


The Travel Reimbursement for Members program aims to achieve the following two key objectives:

  1. Facilitate Member Involvement: The program provides an organized approach for Federation members to participate in professional organization activities. By reimbursing approved business travel expenses, it encourages active engagement.
  2. Financial Prudence: While supporting member participation, the program emphasizes responsible financial management. It ensures that expenses are reasonable and aligned with organizational goals.

This policy applies to the following individuals:

  1. Appointed or Elected Members: Those carrying out Federation responsibilities related to professional organization involvement.
  2. Members Attending STF-Sponsored Events: Individuals participating in events organized by the Federation.
  3. Others Designated by the Executive Director: Additional individuals as specified by the Executive Director.
