Significant variances compared with previous fiscal year
Travel: There was an overall decrease due to travel restrictions implemented because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hospitality: No expenditures were incurred because meetings were conducted virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Conference fees: Expenditures decreased compared with fiscal year 2019–20 because travel restrictions implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a reduction of conferences and lower fees. All conferences were conducted virtually during the pandemic.
