Compensation and Reimbursement

To reduce the burden on people who represent consumers and community members, you may consider reimbursement for parking, gas and public transportation costs to and from meetings. Further, offering compensation shows the organization’s commitment to engaging nontraditional voices in helping make important decisions.  However, there are guidelines that should be followed to ensure that participants who receive public benefits minimize any potential financial conflict: participation should not in any way add economic stress.
