UK member but funded from elsewhere[edit]


  1. Though a standard per diem is mentioned in the policy, as breakfast, some other meals and local transport are going to be included with the Amsterdam venue, any per diem for this event may be at a proportionately lower rate to compensate and is likely to align with a per diem in euros set by WM-NL (if there is one).
