I have some concerns about LATAM, they get less than they spent last
year and due
to bad tracking, this is already a subset of what they
Lets please remember that LATAM member not always have an easy way to get
reimbursements, and reimbursements usually take quite long.
That is true; LATAM definitely came out the lowest here by any
That's largely because their ''request'' was
significantly lower than that

penalize. Do you have a concrete alternate proposal?
LATAM region has always been the last on budget; we have learn to make
smaller budgets more adjusted to reality, yet, when larger Regions ask for
