2021/2022 Budget Proposal For VET

Voucher for Shop ($10 per member) - $1200

  • Provides all members a $10 voucher for use on to purchase J4 merch.
  • This is an item carried over from past two budgets, with a forecast increase to cover potential for extra members in case everyone was to claim. Actuals may not end up reaching budget if members don't claim their voucher.

Marketing Costs - $500

  • For use for specific VET campaigns if required

Volunteer Recognition - $2500

  • Budgeting to allow funds to be available for a recognition activity during the year. This is being requested to allow funds to be available. Without being a budget line in place funds would not be able to be requested.
