Reimbursement Policy


While the Society wishes to encourage the most economical use of funds available in support of its programs and activities, it is recognized that individuals participate without recompense and often at some personal sacrifice.  This is why the Society has tried to make its reimbursement policy as liberal as possible.  Members of the Board of Directors are encouraged to obtain financial support for their professional activities from their respective employers where possible.

  1. Expense reports should be submitted to the Treasurer within two weeks after completion of the trip.

  2. It is the policy of the Society to reimburse for travel expenses on the basis of actual expenditures involved in attending officially called meetings or officially recognized events.

    2.1  Persons traveling on Society business are entitled to transportation, accommodations and service which meet reasonable and adequate standards for convenience, safety and comfort.  In applying this general policy, it is the hope that those traveling for the Society will use the same care in incurring expenses that would be used if traveling at personal expense.

    2.2  When air transportation is used, less than first class accommodations are considered generally as constituting convenient, safe and comfortable service.  When automobile transportation is used, reimbursement will be made at the current rate of the Internal Revenue Service for the active year.  However, mileage reimbursement will be limited to jet tourist/economy transportation cost.

    2.3  No travel expenses shall be paid for attending Board Meetings or invitational activities if they are within the officer’s base residence area, e.g. if the officer is based in Oklahoma City and a meeting is at the OPhA headquarters, no travel is paid.

    2.4  Persons traveling on Society business are requested to directly pay their individual expenses and file reimbursement vouchers.

  3. The following reimbursement policy is in effect for meals:

    3.1  To advise individuals traveling on official Society business that this policy applies whether meals are taken on an individual or group basis; and,

    3.2  The policy will adhere to Internal Revenue Service guidelines for appropriate reimbursement of expenses relating to meals and travel expenses incurred.
