My recent experience with global event tell me that we never can be 100%
sure how we will need for travel. Because that we have cash reserves, and
we will send it back if we do not spent it. So war several chapters told
they have money for travel.  I hope WMF can cover travel costs. (Asaf, what
you think about this?)

About topics, part of our experience should be part of program and how we
can help each other. If we are looking for professional it is good to find
someone somewhere but we do not have a lot of time because i have to make
accommodation booking.

Yes, we do not need 100% fixed but we need goals and main concept. We
should work all together to make this related to all sides - WMF and WMD &
Other chapters who can/want to cover some costs.
