Working with Limited Budget

Your executive board works with a small budget and, after paying for the non-negotiables (such as paying for the website, sending the Affiliate Chapter Representative to Affiliate Chapter Meetings in Toronto), must often choose among offering a good spread of food, renting a venue, or bringing in a high-demand presenter. We don't have the budget to do all three. With this in mind, we want your input on the idea of charging a small amount for PD events, as many other affiliates do.
