In order to obtain the best airline fare, the Foundation requires that you make your travel arrangements as soon as possible. Please arrange your travel so you can attend the entire meeting.

Please use the Foundation's travel agent to book your flight

If you wish to book your own travel, you must first contact JSMF directly for approval. If you decide to book your own travel, we will reimburse you for the cost of a round-trip ticket from your home location to the meeting location. Airfare change fees are not reimbursable.

Note: If you'd like your spouse to travel with you, it is typically not a problem if an additional person stays in your room. However you must contact the hotel directly to be certain. In all instances, you are financially responsible for all travel expenses for your spouse. If you are making your travel arrangements with our travel agent, it is possible for your flight (the invited guest) to be charged to JSMF and your companion's flight to be charged to your personal credit card. Be aware that some locations cannot accommodate companion travelers.

Travel Expenses

If you have been invited to a JSMF sponsored workshop or meeting, your travel expenses will be covered to attend. This includes:
  • Airfare (coach-class) or trainfare
  • Lodging
  • Ground transportation
  • Meals during the meeting

Airfare, lodging, ground transportation to and from the meeting site, and on-site meals are paid directly by JSMF. You are responsible for submitting itemized receipts for reimbursement of other travel expenses within 30 days of the close of the workshop using the reimbursement form. Reimbursement will occur 6-8 weeks following the close of the meeting.
