0.25 Credit= $50

In addition, if speaker is not local (more than 55 miles away) to the location of the meeting, mileage may be reimbursed. Mileage will be reimbursed at the current federal rate, not to exceed a $100. Total honorarium pay-out will be $300 plus advanced meeting registration for an active RTOW member if requested for a 1.0 credit presentation, unless the speaker is subsidized by an outside donation. If the credit awarded exceeds more than 1.0, then the total will be adjusted to meet the maximum amount per credit and reimbursing mileage not to exceed $100.
