Finance Committee recommends a subsidy for Friends traveling to Annual Gathering in excess of 200 miles:
- subsidy for those traveling over 200 miles by car pools of 3 persons or more $25.00/person
- subsidy for those traveling over 400 miles by car pools of 3 persons or more $50.00/person
- comparable subsidies for people traveling by bus or train, also based on distance.
The subsidy will be paid for by a $1.00 increase in assessment and a $5.00 increase in session fees for Friends in mainland U.S.
