Travel Regulations and Reimbursement
The Frontiers of Engineering is funded through government grants and therefore must follow federal travel regulations. Please read the information below as well as our travel policies carefully to ensure all travel meets these guidelines.
NAE has funding available to cover coach-class airfare of organizing committee members and speakers based on a 21-day advance purchase. Typically, these round-trip fares are around $500 or less. Please book your flights as soon as possible. Note that we will reimburse only for a round-trip ticket between your home city and San Diego International Airport during the official meeting dates. We strongly recommend that you use our travel agency, Executive Travel Associates (ETA). They are familiar with Academy travel rules and are able to directly bill your ticket to the NAE. They are also working with us to keep travel costs down. Please contact ETA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.800.660.0031 to book your ticket and reference travel code NAE110005.
NOTE: If your trip will incorporate travel to another city for other business or travel outside the immediate meeting dates, please contact FOE Staff.
Your room during the course of the meeting, except for incidentals, will be direct-billed to our hosts beginning with check-in on March 27 and check-out on March 30. The meeting ends at noon on March 30, and we anticipate that all of attendees will return home that afternoon. However, if you cannot return on Wednesday due to flight schedules, a fourth night (March 30) will be covered at the Woodfin Hotel. Please complete the travel form by FEBRUARY 18, 2011. Additional nights are the responsibility of the participant and are not reimbursible.
