POLICY REGARDING SPEAKER HONORARIA AND EXPENSES
The Board of Directors has approved the following policy regarding compensation and reimbursement of expenses for speakers asked to participate in the Conferences and other educational activities sponsored by AADMM:
CONFERENCE KEYNOTE and GENERAL SESSION SPEAKER (addressing the full conference audience)
Non-AADMM Members
  1. Honoraria are provided only on an individual basis for speakers who will provide a substantial presentation to the full conference audience and provide a handout to the attendees (a handout may be waived for keynote speakers). An invoice, contract, or other document outlining the financial arrangements must be submitted. Deposits will be processed upon receipt of an agreement or invoice.
  2. Expenses will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $750 for travel (lowest available airfare/car rental that reasonably meets business travel needs), meals during travel and lodging at the conference hotel (room and tax only – no incidentals; the number of nights to be confirmed by Conference Committee).
  3. Honoraria and expense reimbursement must be approved in advance by the Conference Committee.
  4. Speakers are expected to make their own travel arrangements and request reimbursement following the event, submitting the AADMM Speaker Expense Reimbursement Form.
  5. Should the speaker desire to attend the conference, registration will be complimentary. Separately ticketed events are not included but can be paid for by the Speaker. Speakers must confirm their plans to participate to avoid AADMM paying unwarranted additional costs.
AADMM Members
  1. If the conference keynote and General Session Speaker is an AADMM Board member, there will be no expenses reimbursed, complimentary registration offered or honorariums. They must provide a handout to the attendees.
  2. Non board members will be given a complimentary conference registration and must provide a handout to the attendees. Separately ticketed events are not included and are at the expense of the member.
CONFERENCE BREAKOUT SPEAKER (presenting to a portion of the conference audience in concurrent sessions)
Non-AADMM Members
  1. No monetary honorarium will be provided and a handout for attendees is expected. Complimentary conference registration will be extended for the day the person is speaking plus a reduced rate offered to attend the full conference (does not include separately ticketed events.) Expenses will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $500 for travel (lowest available airfare/car rental that reasonably meets business travel needs), lodging at the conference hotel for no more than two nights (room and tax only – no incidentals; the number of nights to be confirmed by Conference Committee), and meals during travel.
  2. Speakers are expected to make their own travel and hotel arrangements, and request reimbursement following the event. Reimbursement will be made upon submission of the Speaker Expense Reimbursement Form and accompanying receipts.
AADMM Members
  1. The honorarium will be a complimentary registration for the conference. No expenses will be reimbursed. A handout is required.
  2. If the breakout speaker or facilitator is a current AADMM Board member, there will be no expenses reimbursed or complimentary registration offered.
CONFERENCE PANEL PRESENTERS (participating as part of a panel presentation in a general or breakout session; panels limited to maximum of 3 people, including the panel facilitator)
Non-AADMM Members
  1. No monetary honorarium will be provided. No expenses will be reimbursed.

Lodging expenses are limited to one night before and one night following the workshop day.
  2. Reimbursement will be made upon submission of the Speaker Expense Reimbursement Form and accompanying receipts.
  3. Speakers are expected to make their own travel arrangements and hotel arrangements, and request reimbursement following the event.
