BEC Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Budget Passed

This past Friday BEC treasurers participated in first hearings for the BEC FY 2018-2019 budget. For the first time in the last five years, BEC was requesting a supplemental budget (an additional budget separate from the base budget) to accommodate new organizations to BEC. The base and supplemental budgets were passed to second hearings on Friday, and the BEC finance team and members from INFOSEC and SEC attended second hearings on Sunday to secure the supplemental budget.

BEC was able to pass a $3,195.00 increase in the BEC budget, funding six new organizations on the budget cycle, raising the BEC budget to it’s the highest level in BEC history! The total budget for FY18-19 is $86,209.00, split over the following line items:

  • Programs: $37,276.00
  • Advertising: $8,121.00
  • Awards: $786.00
  • Copies: $1,011.00
  • Food: $8,375.00
  • Travel: $30,640.00
  • Grand Total: $86,209.00

Thank you to all the BEC treasurers and officers for remaining active in this process and making it possible for Calvin and I to argue for this increase! To view your societies current standing for this FY, please view the live tracking
