On November 6, 2017 Normal had this payment on the meeting documentation: http://www.normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/2772
I filed a Freedom of Information request for details. See the response here: Invoice for Camp Workshop
CAMP stands for Commissioner Assistance & Mentoring Program.
The full name of the Payee is National Alliance of Preservation Commissions..
It looks like Normal and Bloomington went together to get a one day speaker on Historic Preservation. It also looks like the bankrupt State of Illinois will reimburse Normal for this expense. Normal just had to pay for whatever the venue was, food, staff time, etc.
See the NAPC website listing of 2017 CAMPs: https://napcommissions.org/camp/
25 of these CAMPS are listed for 2017 – 4 are in Illinois.
