One of our aims as plans are made for General Conference is to ensure that everyone who needs to attend will be there. For those who live within a day’s drive or less where everyone coming from a church can fit into one or two vehicles, travel costs are relatively inexpensive. But Canada is a large country and not everyone lives within easy driving distances and air travel becomes a necessity.
As in prior conferences, a travel cost equalization plan is being used for the 2011 General Conference. The concept is that those of us who live nearby will pitch in to help those coming from a distance so that everyone pays approximately the same amount for travel expenses to General Conference.
The deadline for remitting travel funds is February 28, 2011.
