I would like all of you to take a look at this page, and offer your thoughts and comments.  If you are an event owner in Q3, it is particularly important that you take a look.


Thanks Max,
it's good to see our event within the list.

(1) If you are an event owner, do you think your event is getting enough support?  If you have either *more* budget than you think you will need, or *less* budget than you think you will need, please speak up.

I did that. In Q2 I've arranged "F9 Release party" without financial assistance from FAMSCo, though I've been insisted to have funds, by FamSCo. But, I managed that locally and thought that FAMSCo budget should be redirected to some more appropriate event on Q2 list.

Note: The event report of mine can be searched through Ambassador mailing lists and visuals are here
(2) Realize that this is a zero-sum game.  To increase one budget requires decreasing something else.  We are trying to balance the needs of people across the world.  We are doing this openly and transparently so that we can try to reach a consensus that works for everyone, rather than just dictating policy.

When I first got this mail, there was $2000+ allotted for 4 Events would be divided by Harish Pillay. Now it's decreased into $1500. I have an event coming on. I don't know how much our event going to get from that 1,500, but decreasing further would make the possiblity of getting an adequate budget is less. I would request not to decrease it further.

(5) Remember that with budget comes responsibility.  Organization, event reports, new contributors, follow-up, etc.

we are learning...
