Per diem in those places are a lot less than in Hawaii. Hawaii has the highest per diem rates in the nation by a huge margin. No government conference outside of a local delegation should be in Hawaii at all.

Strange with the announcement today that Honolulu is the highest priced destination in the USA. But money's no object!! Surprised also that Harry Reid's Las Vegas didn't get it???

As far as I know NGAUS is a "private" association. Dues are paid to the association by the members. The folks traveling would be on their own time and dime or sponsored by the association.

Uncle Sam is not funding this. tasod is correct. NGAUS is a private organization that uses member's dues for expenses, etc. Knowing the details before you post goes a long way...
