Budget Figures for 2018

Monday, July 31, 2017  

Our board of directors recently approved a yearly 3% increase going forward so that we are going up in small increments yearly instead of larger amounts every few years.  We think this will assist with budgeting for our members as well as for our operating budget.  As AAFAME continues to grow so does our expenses & overhead.  This year we have hired an administrative assistant so that we can offer more benefits & improve response time and our event attendance has increased tremendously.  These factors increase our overhead budget, therefore we need to offset with additional income.  

ENGINEER & PROPERTY MANGER MEMBERS:

To the best of our knowledge the following are the figures you should budget for next year:
•    Engineer/Property Manager Dues $180 per year
•    Luncheons $31 per event (11 per year) or $310 if you prepay for entire year (1 luncheon for free)
•    Training $26 per event (10 per year)
•    Chili Slam $78 - $180 (team registration fees)
•    Vendor EXPO will continue to be at no charge!
Average cost per engineer if they were to attend every single event = $800 for professional training & networking! 

VENDOR MEMBERS:

To the best of our knowledge the following are the figures you should budget for next year:
•    Vendor Dues $232 per year (included with annual sponsorship)
•    Additional Vendor Dues $129
•    Luncheons $31 per event (11 per year) or $310 if you prepay for entire year (1 luncheon for free)
•    Sponsorships:  We will be offering our annual sponsorship package for next year and the amounts will range from $2,250 - $4,250 (we will start sales for next year in November 2017).  Annual sponsorships include dues for at least one person in your company.
•    We will also offer single sponsorships (items not sold during annual program) for those vendors who do not wish to participate in the annual sponsorship package, as shown below:

o    Monthly Luncheon ($1,500)
o    Manager's Luncheon ($1,750)
o    Holiday Luncheon ($250-$1,500)
o    Education Partner ($750)
o    Chili Slam (event sponsors range from $500-$3,000)
o    Chili Slam teams (various teams will range from $78 to $258)
o    Membership Directory (advertisements range from $500-$1,250)
o    Vendor EXPO (exhibit tables $500 - $750)
o    Vendor EXPO Featured Sponsors ($1,000-$1,750)
o    Adventure Quest (donations will range from $250-1,500)
o    Career Center ($500)
o    Rotating Ad ($500)

Average cost per vendor if they were to attend every single meeting & sponsor at least one event = less than $1,500 for professional advertising & networking!  Of course you can opt to do more but this would cover a minimum.
We couldn't exist with out your support and we encourage our engineer members to always use an AAFAME vendor.
