Kathy, maybe I’ve missed it, but I haven’t seen a request for budget figures yet for the grant proposals. Not that we have a lot of money to be basing a budget on…
However, I’d like to see what they would like to know!
Yours for grace and mercy,

This is not Sosen’s current budget, it is future budget needs. For instance, estimated costs for supplies, symposiums (with a breakdown, travel, speakers etc), money for RSO family emergencies, 800# just to name a few. I haven’t had too much time this week to work on this. I hope to get some more done by the meeting tomorrow. I too work full time and my time is limited. We can only do what we can in the time we are allotted!!! Maybe you can come up with some dollar amounts? Thank you!
