Hello APAC FAms,

Time has come to plan next year budget, FY2013.

As per the continuous improvement on budget management by FAmSCo,
Budget Wrangler per each region needs to submit the next year budget
at the end of the each year.

All the expenses except FUDcon and FAD should be included. This is a
projection of the total funds we need for the year, though we tried
last time that wasnt possible. Therefore this is the first time we are
going to do this.

I know as per the current situation it is hard to make such a budget
because sometimes special needs may arises. However we need to manage
his challenge. Therefore it is required to get information from the
FAms and plan. Tuan will also help me on this.

Following has been identified as main areas that we need funding.

x Media production
x SWAG production
x Expenses for Release parties
x Event sponsorships
x Event attendee subsidy
x Special projects/ policies
x Others

The process will follow like this, if you planning to do something for
next year under above categories please prepare a rough budget and
update the ticket. Please include in ticket[1] what is it (which
category it belongs), expected quarter* and amount required(good if it
can have a cost breakdown). Do mention the estimated rough cost.
Margin for unexpected expenses will be considered later at the budget
preparing stage.

Deadline for the entries = 2013 Jan 04, 23:59 UTC

Once the budget is prepared I ll present it next APAC FAm meeting and
once it is agreed I can forward it to FAmSCo.
