Travel/Lodging Reimbursement

Effective Aug. 9, 2015

Mileage: For any MHSAA-sanctioned business in which a USAOA member has to travel to, the executive board will pay $25 per 100 miles from the member’s home address to the location of the meeting. For example, the trip to St. Johns High School from USAOA president Warren Kent’s home would be 127.2 miles; therefore, he would receive $25. A request in writing (email would suffice) must be made in order to receive funds within 90 days of the event. The board would also like to stress that carpooling should be considered.

Hotel: If lodging is required for any MHSAA-sanctioned business in which a USAOA member must stay overnight, the executive board will pay $100 for a hotel room based on double occupancy. For example, if two people must spend the night, the board will pay up to $100. If the two people want separate rooms, the board will still pay maximum $100 together, not individually. A request in writing (email would suffice) and a receipt must be received within 90 days of the event.
