If an honorarium of $1000or more is to be paid to a speaker,
the Director shall notify the Chair of the Senate.
No payment shall be made to, and no contract shall be signed
with, any speaker whose total compensation would exceed $5000without
the prior approval of the Senate.
A proposal to approve total compensation of more than $5000must also be
accompanied by documentation showing that the speaker has received
an honorarium in excess of this amount from at least one other source,
unless this requirement is waived by the Senate.
If the Chair determines that the Senate cannot meet in a timely manner to
consider a proposed honorarium under the provisions of these By-Laws, then
the Steering Committee of the Senate may act on behalf of the Senate in
approving such a proposal.
