Operational Budget for 2017

Thanks to our sponsors, and a series of successful events, OSGeo has an operational budget for 2017.

The Board took a different approach to the 2017 budget, dividing up by committee. The Board has reached out to each committee for guidance on their 2017 requirements.

Please keep in mind that the following is budget and does not represent a commitment to spend money on the actives listed - to do that we need your help as a volunteer!
