When I hear/read the statement "Not in the company budget," I admit that the
hair on the back of my neck curls.
For more years than I remember, but including years when I was not
"gainfully" employed, I paid my own way to COMMON conferences, which
included the conference fees, transportation and room/board (fortunately I
don't eat much). I understand that many people have more pressing
commitments that I did.
But any company not willing to help you enhance your skills and knowledge
gets what they deserve. And so do you.
