Memphis Motions
Hi Li-Chung, Under the current MP formula, these 4-session Regional events pay approximately 10% more (yes, that is correct) of what a 2-session event would pay. In 2017, the BOD passed a motion that gives a 4-session event a 40% increase over the award calculated by the formula. The 4-session ...
