Exec Report: VP FinanceJon Warren - VP Finance
Posted on: January 19, 2011
Budgets, Beets, Battlestar Galactica. Hey everybody, I hope you’re enjoying being back in class! For many of us, including myself, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting steadily brighter: only three months left! The beginning of the term is always a hectic time, as we figure out what we were supposed to remember for school and where we’re supposed to be. On top of that, the pesky old budget needs to be planned, which means directors need to get their budget proposals in to me!
Budget proposals have been steadily rolling in and things look to be in good shape. I don’t really have much to report on that front at this point. Same old, same old. If you haven’t submitted a budget proposal, I’m already hunting you down, so you’d better hurry up and submit it! The budget will be shown to council at Meeting #2 and will be voted on, so be sure to be there!
On a longer-term note, I’m working to get the financial information from previous terms put in an online database which any EngSoc member can access. It will be really useful for everyone who wants to see how our spending is broken down, and directors should find that it will be a huge asset in planning their budgets and spending. I will let you know how it goes throughout the term.
Finally, just as a reminder, Novelties is NOT closed! It’s relocated to the back room of the Orifice while the construction in the CPH foyer continues. Feel free to come in and browse our wares any time between 11:30am and 1:30pm throughout the week.
That’s all for now, thanks!
