The highlight of the January Board meeting is always the annual budget review. The Board considers each line item request from officers and committee chairs and attempts to fit it all within the more-or-less ironclad income expectations.
Well, ok, not so much. The Section virtually always budgets for a significant deficit, knowing that some of the requests are for events that won’t happen, and some others are significantly higher than the organizers really expect to spend. They say past performance is not a guarantee of future results, but we continually prove “them” wrong, and finish the year almost invariably with a modest surplus despite the grim deficit budget.
So it is for 2016. Just so you know, whether you attended the Board meeting or not, what the Section has in mind for 2016, the final budget is here for your perusal. Check it out, maybe find a subcommittee that sounds interesting, look up the contact info for the Chair, and get involved.
