[community] FW: Remunerating advisory committees

I have a "research team" looking at being blind & belonging in
academia/higher education. Each member (minus me) will be given an
honourarium/stipend, but we haven't decided how much yet (we've discussed
it as a team, and are going to make that decision collaboratively)

I do think it is an important thing to respect members of these
team/committees - and in our society payment seems to be the biggest way we
show respect for someone's time/expertise. All too often I volunteer my
time/expertise/experience for free - which I really do like doing, but I'm
a bit torn - am I perpetuating a disrespectful system by doing this over
and over again?

Great question/consideration.
