Motion: discounted tickets for committee members and workshop presenters

Daniel Silk
Hi all

With workshops due to be announced on the 8th of September, I would like to confirm to workshop presenters and conference committee members that they are eligible for a community contributor ticket.

As we are all aware at this point, organising the conference takes a lot of effort from a lot of people. I think that recognising that effort by offering community contributor tickets is appropriate. Preparing and presenting a half-day workshop and associated materials also requires significant effort that should be recognised.

We have currently allocated 20 community contributor tickets and we have sold 2. By specifically reaching out to workshop presenters and committee members with this option, we may need to allocate up to 35, although there is overlap with sponsors who already have free tickets, workshop presenters who are also committee members, etc.

If your employer would happily pay for your attendance at the full registration price point, then that option is obviously still available and appreciated.

Due to a very successful sponsorship drive, we look likely to achieve a healthy surplus, and this proposal has a maximum impact of around $4500.

Thoughts?

Ngā mihi
Daniel

These community contributors should be formally defined as so.

I fully support this. The actual impact should be lower, last year some people who were otherwise entitled opted to pay full price, and many of the workshop presenters would have already qualified as community contributors or had sponsor tickets. Great to show appreciation for the work that all these people do.
