Elected Delegates are required to go to AMTA National Convention. A written report is required to be submitted with expense report in order for reimbursement to be issued. AMTA-NY reimburses airfare, meals and expenses related to travel. Hotel reimbursement is at half of the room rate, so sharing a room with another Delegate is required.
