To All:

If you are INTERESTED in attending the 2019 National Weather Association
44th Annual Meeting, on September 7-12, 2019, in Huntsville, Alabama,

   Please do not exceed the allotted number of spaces for your office
   and/or region that is already listed on the Google spreadsheet.

   List the funding source in Column F.

   AFS portfolio slots will be centrally funded. There is a budgeted dollar
   amount ceiling for the number of AFS portfolio slots.  The group travel
   POCs will carefully monitor this and will work with the FMCs to stay within
   the centrally funded budget after the data call is closed.

   Local funds CAN be used for a limited number of additional slots. They
   have been identified in the spreadsheet with funding source “local” for
   each region and NCEP. You do not have to use these slots, but if you do, it
   comes out of the LOCAL budget, not the centrally funded AFS budget.

   Abstract fees should be charged on an office purchase card, not your
   travel card, where possible.

   Add FAA funded travelers to the FAA tab.

   Add local travelers to the Local tab.
