$7000 for one day

By:  Diane Benjamin

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.







One thought on “$7000 for one day

  1. I swear to God, these people seem to need a trainer and seminars for EVERYTHING – CAMP should be SCAM. I respect people with knowledge, I don’t respect people whose egos and greed are so huge that they charge people exorbitant sums of money in order for them to impart this information – if people/towns/companies would stop paying these full of themselves people, they would disappear, or at least lower their rates.
