We were asked for clarification on approved budget for this initiative on 5 Feb - and did not respond in a clear fashion.

Here is where the budget currently stands: 43k

  • 30k approved by board
  • 5k approved by board (8k to cover risk due to communication from SAC)
  • 0k marketing carry over from 2016 (budget meeting rejected this idea)
  • 5k marketing committee budget, sacrificing some 2017 goals
  • 3k sponsors

Here is the target: 50k

  • 35k approved by board
  • 5k approved by board (8k to cover risk due to communication from SAC)
  • 0k marketing carry over from 2016 (budget meeting rejected this idea)
  • 5k marketing committee budget, sacrificing some 2017 goals
  • 5k sponsors (projected sponsorship)

As noted in the meeting this budget reflects a sponsorship target of 5k; this is based on some verbal agreements (but as always reflects a risk until we invoice). What we can do to help here is reach out to organizations that we know that are interested in OSGeo performing more outreach.

Would you prefer to close this and re-open with the amendment we voted on the board meeting or move to another motion?

Basically the amendment is what Venka proposed "The extra 5k would be reallocated from the board travel budget to the website/re-branding budget"
