*Note: The Mayor, as vice-chair of the Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP) Board typically receives up to approximately $10,000 per year in honorariums. The City receives this payment directly, at the request and donation of the current Mayor, to offset training costs for Council members.

Neither the Mayor nor Councillors receive any other honorariums for attending committee or board meetings.
