Ok, so there are several concerns here. We should only send someone
who is involved with ChiPy or plans to be in the future. Also, on the
cost side, do we also need to cover all their expenses including
travel, lodging, and expenses?  If so, is there any way to come up
with a hard limit on what we are willing to spend. I imagine some of
this could come out of the ChiPy bank and trust; however, the rest of
it needs to come directly from our sponsors or the recipient will need
to find on his one.

In other words, I think ChiPy should just pay the Patron fee and I
will try to get that reduced when talking to Jesse. All other costs, I
will work hard to find someone to cover directly; however, I can not
promise. Sound fair?

I will leave it up to you Sheila how you want to nominate someone and
confirm they can still go.
