Listserv Question - We are sending one full-time salaried employee and two part-time hourly employees to an out-of-town conference for 3 days (that includes Sunday for travel). They are getting reimbursed for travel expenses and hotel. I'm not sure how to handle meal expenses (a daily stipend?) and how the employees should be compensated while they are gone (hourly wages? If so, how many hours per day -- just the hours they are actually attending the conference?). We have not done this before -- it was always either myself or our VP and we took no additional benefits for the time away. Can any of you offer any advice?
Listserv Question - A colleague is looking for recommendations for grant writers (firms or individuals) with experience in governmental grant writing, foundation grantmaking, etc. Do you work with contractual grant writers?
