In addition to Jo Hasenau's comment on http://forge.typo3.org/boards/15/topics/13 I think this applies also here in regards of T3CON conference tickets:

"Well - to me it does not make too much sense when the T3A pays money for the core developers to have them pay tickets for a conference held by the T3A." as Jo wrote on the other topic, which I would agree and would also be the same situation here, at least regarding the tickets.

From an economic point of view tickets for the T3A can't be free. I could imagine that we could think of an alternative way to sponsor a certain amount of free ticket within certain rules. I favour the transparent announcement of all costs so that we can value what such an invitation is worth.

cost are a little bit to high and I also agree with Olvier about the useless money moving.
I'm not sure about Oliviers opinion about the Assoc members.

Additional to that, people who are invited to the con to present their budget don't have to visit the whole conference
So lets say one night is ok, since it's in the evening, but no tickets is needed.

Greetings Volker

hi all,
we have incomings and outgoings in our association accounting and we have to track the money flow to enhance things. if you now shift money from A to B without any track you are producing exactly the untransparency i try to solve since 5 years.
i'm happy that we finally are able to track the money so we are able to answer e.g. questions like: why are the t3con earnings decreased in 2019 compared to 2018? maybe the difference is, that in 2019 we sponsored the double number of tickets thus this would be totally normal. with 2 applications we keep track on such things. in addition i think it should be possible for all association members to have an impact on such spendings/applications. e.g. i never get my conference tickets payed by the association, i either work as helping hand, part of the organization team or do talks. so for me it is important that you discuss the sense of paying this tickets for the EAB and the board.
best gina
