I think thats correct, with some wiggle room. Seems the last from
Carol on this was its OK in exceptional circumstances to send both
non-US attendees (for some definition of exceptional to be clarified
with her I suppose) and to use our discretion in the matter. More in
soc mentors list archive.

I agree that giving priority to org admins is a simple (and even
intuitive) metric for choosing our attendees. Where org admins have
attended before and/or would graciously consider making room for
others (as both Ross and Luciano have in this thread), I think we
should look to the wider mentor pool.

Heres the net of what I'm saying. Assume same logistics of mentor
summit for next 5 years for sake of illustration here. Then I think it
makes more sense from an org perspective if the number of individuals
we send over across those 5 years going forward tends towards 10,
rather than tending towards 2.
