Let’s talk Dollars and sense

Steps in developing a budget.

  • Decide what you want to do with your money

    • Should benefit the entire membership, not just a few

      • i.e., attend conferences, pay for guest speakers, make a donation to a charitable cause, or even have a party.

      • Make your payment to the NATA foundation (every program is encouraged to donate at least $250 annually)

      • Let everyone decide what they want to do, this should NOT be an executive or even faculty decision
