Silly question about CSM summit in Iceland

Who pays for the flight and hotel during the summit. Is it on each CSM to cover the cost or is it on CCP's dime?

CCP cover the flight, and the hotel for the duration of the summit.

An individual member can arrange with CCP for flights to be early/late, and cover extra days at a hotel themselves. I.e. fly in 4 days early (ccp's dime), cover 4 nights in a hotel yourself, do the summit (ccp's dime), fly out (ccp's dime)

Depending on which hotel it is, transport to ccp can be covered. Transport back isn't (as you'll probably be stopping off in the city center for dinner)

Breakfast is available at the hotel, or at CCP. (free)
Lunch is available at CCP (free)
Dinner is available at CCP for one day (or 2, depending on which days the summit is on. free)
A final dinner is covered by CCP.

So you have to cover dinner the other nights, and any booze.


If I had to pay for it, I probably wouldn't be doing every summit, just from a cost perspective.


From the last one:
Fly in on Sunday.
Summit runs Monday till Thursday, 9am or 10am till 5pm or 6pm
Fly out on Friday. (yay, my flight took off at 7:40 am. and the airport is an hour out of Reykjavik)

Woo! CSM XI!

Thanks for the detailed info. Obviously it's more work than play for the CSM. It's good to know that CCP pays for most of the expenses. I assume that if a CSM wanted to bring a guest that flight and extra cost would be on the CSM. I'm not planning on running for CSM anytime soon. I'm just more interested in it from an academic standpoint.

Correct.

Depending on the room, you can probably share with one person. (Every room I've been in was a double)

Some of us end up using that second bed for wasted devs.
