XTO Standards Committee
REMINDER: Officer and committee proposed budgets for 2018 are due no later than July 1, 2017.
CORRECTION: The meeting to discuss the proposed budget will be on September 7th and not on September 4th as previously announced. The place will be announced as soon as confirmation is received.
TIME: 7:00pm – 8:00pm and the conference bridge will not be available.
Each committee is asked to submit the budget that reflects the consensus of the committee members and not a budget that reflects the ideas/wants/needs, etc., of the chairman of the committee. Committee chairmen are asked to let chapter members know the meeting during which the proposed 2018 committee budget will be discussed. This will allow Sorors who are interested to attend that meeting.
The Chapter Development Guide and the approved 2017 XTO Budget are attached for your convenience.
Please contact me if you have questions or if you need clarification as to what is expected during the budget process.
Thank you in advance for your part in helping to ensure that XTO will continue to operate efficiently.

Chairman, XTO Finance Committee
