WaterNow Alliance is pleased to offer limited travel funding for transportation and hotel accommodations as a courtesy to Alliance Members* (current elected and appointed city councilmembers, mayors, water district board members, and utility executive managers) who reserve their hotel rooms and flights on or before March 5th!

Hotel Accommodations

WaterNow will cover the cost of a one night stay at the AT&T Conference Center or the Courtyard/Residence Inn by Marriott on the evening of March 27th if you reserve your room by March 5th.

The cost of your room will be covered directly by WaterNow and no reimbursement forms are needed (a personal credit card will be used to hold your reservation but will not be charged). Additional room nights and expenses incurred during your stay are not eligible for travel funding. WaterNow will not cover the cost of room cancellations or no-shows.



Airfare to/from Austin Bergstrom International Airport or automobile travel (for those traveling more than 50 miles each way) will be reimbursed up to $250.

In order to receive airfare reimbursement you must reserve your flight and email your flight receipt to Lindsay Rogers (ler@waternow.org) by March 5th. Following the Summit, WaterNow will provide a travel expense reimbursement form to Alliance members.  

Note on Travel Reimbursement:

  • Parking, ground travel to and from airports, meals, snacks, taxis, public transit and other incidental expenses are not reimbursable

  • For automobile travel, gas is not separately reimbursable but is covered by the 2018 IRS rate (54.5 cents/mi)

  • Reimbursements must be submitted following attendance of WNA Annual Summit (expected remittance time is 3-4 weeks)

*At this time, WaterNow is not able to offer travel reimbursement to WNA Members who are formerly elected/appointed councilmembers or board members or to Associate Members (utility staff). Please contact Lindsay Rogers (ler@waternow.org) with any questions.
