PASS Summit 2013 Report #12

Waiting on the second day keynote to begin.

Douglas McDowell going over funding sources for PASS – primarily the Summit, but $100k from the BA Conference. Not clear if the slide/pie chart is correct, the BA funding seems larger than I’d have expected. Discussing the transformation of the budget process, also not clear on what that looks like. Today we have 1 million dollars in reserves. That’s really good. [Me: Good start, but not enough – one natural disaster could knock out the Summit for a year]. Goal is 10% of revenue into reserves (Me: net or gross?]. Three full time people in IT.

Now to Bill Graziano. Douglas is leaving the Board this year, going over his accomplishments. Rob Farley also leaving this year. Rushabh Mehta also leaving, finishing up this year as the Immediate Past President.

Just announced via press release, PASS Summit Returning to Seattle, WA, Nov. 4-7, 2014. Early bird pricing available.
