Budget 2020

As a reminder, in 2016 the board of directors approved a 3% yearly increase in dues & luncheons to cover natural inflation & increase in overhead expenses. 

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 $190 per year
•    Luncheons $33 per event (11 per year) or $330 if you prepay for entire year (1 luncheon for free)
•    Training $28.00 per event (10 per year)
•    Chili Slam $50 - $100 (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 $247 per year (included with annual sponsorship)
•    Additional Vendor Dues $137
•    Luncheons $33 per event (11 per year) or $330 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 $2,500 - $5,500 (we will start sales for next year in November 2019).  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 ($500-$1,500)
o    Chili Slam (event sponsors range from $500-$3,500)
o    Chili Slam teams (various teams will range from $500)
o    Membership Directory (advertisements range from $500-$1,500)
o    Vendor EXPO (exhibit tables $500-750)
o    Vendor EXPO Featured Sponsors ($1,250-$2,000)
o    Adventure Quest (donations will range from $250-1,500)
o    Career Center ($750)
o    New Benefits are being added every year
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.
