Annual Program chair subvention

It is ISA policy to subvent the annual program chair to facilitate her/his work on the annual program. The amount of the subvention is determined by the Governing Council in its annual budget; it is assumed that the program chair’s home department/institution will assist with the program chair’s activities and functions.
Funds from the subvention cannot be used for the program chair’s home institution’s overhead. The subvention is for directly assisting the program chair in producing the annual program.

The program chair is responsible for covering all expenses related to the organization of the annual program and its execution, using a combination of home institutional support and ISA subvention.2 Any funds not spent from the ISA subvention at the conclusion of the program must be returned to ISA headquarters.
