    One day cost of $16,900!

    This was at Romeoville, which was built ground up in the 90's and was fully paid for by the Illinois Circuits!

    an utter scam, nothing short of theft if the R&F were to pay it, how much can it cost to heat, run A/C and the electric , few hundred dollars? there is no food provided,cleaning, security and stewarding is from voluntary labour, how on earth can it be justified?

    We share a day with another circuits and they had two sets of expenses, both for different amounts??? each was in the $20k+ range as well. At first I was shocked by the amount, then wondered how in the hell it was and even 50/50 split. Could have been a prorate based on publishers or some crap, but the amount was so high it seemed that its more like a preset amount than an actual "expense".

    I posted this in another thread. Circuit assemblies have a set expense per publisher assigned by the branch. In your case the likely assigned expense was 5-6 dollars per publisher plus actual expenses. So every assembly pays their share of heating, upkeep, renovations, traveling expenses for speakers and then they add the per publisher fee. That's how it's been done for many years.

    That seems shady and completely non-transparent. They gotta be making money on that shit.
