Another CIO Junket Offer
When will they learn to stop sending me these inappropriate offers of free travel and resort hotel stays? Here is the latest one to come into my mailbox. The rooms at this hotel start at $500 per night. I am used to the Stevens Point Fairfield Inn where I get a $59 per night rate. I can’t believe anyone would find this ethical:
