“It was amazing to be treated like royalty for two, unstressed days away from the job, while being enriched with work-related training.”
“This is a total credit to the planning committee having attended to every detail…it was evident that this was a labor of love on the part of all involved.”
GrapeVine nurses can submit a reimbursement form following the conference with a copy of the hotel receipt attached. The maximum reimbursement per person is half the double occupancy rate of a room at the Concourse ($164/night + 14.5% tax = $187.78 per room, or $93.89 per person). $93.89 is the maximum hotel reimbursement per person, regardless of what hotel you choose. Reimbursement forms will be available at the conference registration desk.
GrapeVine Nurses traveling to the conference from outside Dane County can apply for mileage reimbursement to help offset the costs of attending the conference. A reimbursement request form will be available at the registration table at the conference. Round-trip mileage will be paid at a rate of $0.51 per mile.
