Mileage Requirements

  • Participants are expected to be present for the duration of the IMA event with ½ program attendance as a minimum for airfare reimbursement.
    • ½ of the event means participation in 2.5 days of a 5-day workshop or 1.5 days of a 3-day workshop and excludes travel.
    • This reflects the IMA's commitment to our funding agencies and to highly interactive programs.

  • If you choose to drive to the IMA, we will reimburse $0.62.5 per mile (effective July 1, 2022) and local parking costs up to the amount of the lowest cost airfare or the maximum stated in your invitation, whichever is lower.
    • Mileage can be shown by conducting an Internet map search and printing the results. It is also helpful to do a search for the lowest cost airfare for the dates of your visit for comparison.
  • Receipts are required for parking reimbursement which is included in your total travel allowance.

  • A complete expense reimbursement form is required.
    • The form can be accessed through your MyIMA prior to your arrival at the IMA.

    • Forms must be uploaded through your MyIMA.
