Budget 2019 spreadsheet

  • Admin: Fine
  • Travel:
    • Jody asks that we make better use of this opportunity. Bonn was *great*, after foss4g we were too tired.
    • FOSS4G: 3 x 500 europe, 5 x 2000 remote, 2000 accommodation = 13000
  • Event support: $7000
    • five events, 1000 per event
    • consider increasing, … 2000?

Partners

  • IGU - osgeo present?
  • ISPRS - 2020 (every four years)
  • ICC - 2019 (every two years)
  • booths can be very expensive - like $5k
    • Guido arranged booth swap previously?
    • How to staff the booth
  • Talk at the events? Can we ask as a partner?
  • Workshops at …
  • How to attend
    • Assume five events? can we work from last year?
    • Check for GeoForAll? Check to with projects?
    • See who is going? Ask if they can do a workshop (e.g. co-branded workshop with other groups from the organisation)
  • Some risk around ticket cost, may be higher than plane and accommodation
