(b.) No air travel for student branches in the continental U.S. will be reimbursed
(c.) Air travel for students from student branches where ground transportation is not possible may be reimbursed but only with prior approval of the RSAC and Regional Director.
Per Diem (food/lodging/incidentals):
(a.) Branch Chair at $40/day, 2.5 days maximum, contingent on attendance at the Student Branch Leadership Training meeting.

Some branches travel to SoutheastCon in a charter bus and share it with other student branches. This is managed by the student branches, not IEEE. However, SAC will help connect branches with other branches looking to share a charter bus. Branches can chose any bus company they would like. Some Universities even choose to use their Universities bus. Another option is the company Charter Up; which has an account manager that is aware of the needs for SoutheastCon and will help branches determine their route and book a bus. Information on Charter Up can be found on their website ( https://www.charterup.com/ ). The account manage that is aware of SoutheastCon and student needs is email@example.com.
