Quote from: paultuttle on May 20, 2019, 06:10:59 AMI've been able to pay out of pocket very cheaply by (1) driving my own car long hours to get to the conference location and (2) staying in cheap but safe motels (the ones that rent by the night, rather than the ones that rent by the hour).By doing this, I was able to keep one visit to Orlando under $500 (including the $100 conference registration fee). By doing this and using Metro, I was able to keep a visit to DC under $750 (including the $500 registration fee).
Quote from: Morden on May 20, 2019, 09:33:54 AMI think a lot depends upon the career stage. One thing I wish I had done/known earlier: Pick a particular association and prioritize its meetings for several years in a row. You gradually build up a network of people (especially if you also volunteer in some capacity for the organization).
