​  
We are looking forward to your participation in the upcoming HPOG Roundtable 5 to be held at the Hampton Inn Philadelphia City Center on Tuesday May 1 and Wednesday May 2.  Grantees scheduled to attend the Philadelphia, PA Roundtable are as follows:
 
Host Grantee:  Temple University-Center for Social Policy & Community Development
Other Grantees Attending:
1.    District Board of Trustees of Pensacola State College
2.    Gateway Community & Technical College
3.    Hostos Community College
4.    Schenectady County Community College HPOG
 
All out-of-town participants in the Roundtable will be staying at the Hampton Inn Philadelphia City Center where we have obtained rooms at the federal per diem rate. 
 
The main emphasis at this Roundtable is to enable you and other similar grantees to work with your Program Maps and Career Ladders, share ideas and experiences, and enhance your expertise in implementing your main HPOG program components.
 
Performance Excellence Partners (PEP) will be facilitating the logistics for your trip.  PEP will be making arrangements for your flights and hotel accommodations, and will be handling any other travel expense reimbursement.  The travel, hotel, and per diem costs will be covered through PEP (not through grant funds).  Under the Travel and Accommodation tab (above), you will find guidelines that PEP, as the HPOG Contractor, must follow in complying with contractual requirements to limit expense reimbursement to those costs that do not exceed FDIC travel reimbursement guidelines.  Travelers will not be reimbursed for excess costs caused by an indirect route as a matter of personal preference, premature departure for personal reasons from a temporary location; or extending a stay for personal reasons. 
 
ALL of the tabs above – Agenda, Travel and Accommodations, Contact and Event Resources – will provide information about your roundtable event.  
 
Instructions on how to book your airfare or train ticket using PEP's travel agent is located under the Travel and Accommodations tab.  You are required to use PEP's travel agent to book your flight.  We will not reimburse your airfare if you book on your own.  PEP will also make your hotel reservation if one is required. Please do not call the hotel directly.  If you are a Hilton Honors Reward member, please provide your number to get credit for your stay.  Also let us know if you would like to share a room with someone.  After the event, we will provide you with a form to receive reimburse for your M&IE per diem and ground transportation.
