Salaries of the Texas Bar...


Particularly noteworthy (and vaguely listed) budget items for 2020-21:
  
“Administrative”:  $2.35 million dollars
“Board Commitments” $2.125 million dollars
“Meetings & Conferences”   $5.27 million dollars
“Publicity / Advertising” $987,078 dollars
Salaries & Benefits” $28 million dollars
“Travel”  $2.4 million dollars

Where does all that money for "travel", "administrative", "board commitments", "publicity" and "meetings" actually go? The Texas Bar's budget apparently doesn't disclose that, does it? Slush funds? For whom?
