Board, Sections and Committees within the VVSOR propose new ideas for events each year.
Their budget proposals for these plans are collected in January and discussed in a meeting with all sections, committees and the daily board in the early February preparation for the Annual Meeting in March. These budget plans provide a rough guide of the events and projects in the upcoming year, as well as their associated costs.
Of course also all small expenses can be reimbursed, including travel expenses, gifts and spending on committee/board meetings. We encourage section boards and committees to meet in person (after the corona pandemic) and appreciate the amount of time and energy section board members and committees devote to our society. So we hope committees can also find the time to reflect on a successful project completed, and host themselves a lunch to celebrate. Also we welcome any initiative to thank departing volunteers with a nice gift or by hosting a joint thank-you dinner. Sections have also shown to be very creative in ways to thank speakers for their contribution to VVSOR events.
Regarding travel expenses, the following rules apply:
In the following list, each committee and section can find a form to reimburse their expenses. We ask to use separate forms if expenses are in two very different categories, e.g. hosting a VVSOR event and spending on a gift for a committee member that is leaving.
