■ Communicate DOWN with answers (Respect)
■ Always keep a positive attitude when working with
With almost 1,100 members, we are the size of some
corporations! Thus, even though we are a non-profit, we have
to “think” like we’re managing a company budget!

Budgets: Golf, NYMix, Fundraising Event, Awards Gala)
Reallocation of Funds

Sponsorship: Protocols, Processes and Nuances
Budgeted funds in excess of $100 may be moved from one line item to
another by request of the Board Director to and with the approval of the
Reporting VP and the VP of Finance.

For amounts under $100.00, the Board Director may approve the
reallocation with notification to the VP of Finance.

Budgets are reviewed quarterly by the full Board.

Background information: After some investigation, it is the considered
opinion of those to whom we spoke that a budget is a working document
and a motion of the Board is not required to reallocate funds.

This new policy ensures that MPIGNY remains fiscally responsible.
What role does communication play in our chapter?

Chapter Website
Marketing Events (Internal/External)
Chapter Magazine: Metrolines
Email Marketing: Metrobytes
Social Media
Chapter “Brand” Compliance: Logos and Approvals
Chapter Directory
Communications Process: Email
Email Blast Schedule
We send out the METROBYTE e-blast each Tuesday and Thursday at
10:00am or 2:00pm. Please submit materials to us at least 48 hours prior to
the date of distribution!

The VP, Director of Co-Chair can submit information for an upcoming

As much copy to “sell” the program as possible, Speaker bio and head
shot, venue information/logo and all sponsor logos.

•Copy: Word document in 10 point Arial font written flush on the left
margin with NO formatting and NO pictures embedded.
•Pictures: We will only accept JPEG and GIF pictures.
•RULE ON PICTURES: Always submit as attachments and NOT in the body of
the document!!
Communications Flow
The chapter newsletter comes out every other month. Be precise
when you submit program articles for Metrolines and double-check
dates, times, fees, etc. before submitting as may use this information
to post on the chapter website.

To have information posted anywhere on the website, submit the
information in a word document (not in the body of an email) and
attach any images you want used in JPEG or GIF format.

After your email request is designed, we will forward a draft for review
to the Director and Co-Chair for the specific program. You will have 2
opportunities to edit the email before it goes out to the chapter. This
ensures we stay on our marketing schedule.
Additional Notes:
•Contracts for ALL CHAPTER EVENTS can only be signed by the
Chapter President or the Vice President of Finance

•Before confirming your forecasted numbers on your final BEO from
the venue, you MUST confer directly with Kathie Stapleton for event

•We are Tax-Exempt!
Obtain the Tax Exempt Certificate from the VP of Finance or Kathie
More Notes:
•All vendor invoices must be remitted directly to Kathie

•Kathie will email details to you when a bill is received and request
that you complete and return the payment request form
(The form is available on the chapter website)

•The payment request form must be completed in its entirety before it
can be approved

•Invoices will be paid directly to the vendor via check or chapter CC

•PLEASE give enough lead time to process payment!
(Checks are generally cut only twice a month at Board Meetings and
sometimes at a function)
Example: Education Co-Chair
1.Meet with the education cluster and your committee to agree a
program of work ... select topics (broad stroke ideas are okay) and
present full calendar to the board for approval.

2. Check your budget to see how much money you have and how
many people we are planning on having attend the event.

3. Find a venue that will work within that fee structure.

4. Try NOT to have a minimum guarantee but flexibility to provide
numbers as we start promoting the event. If that's not possible,
check with Kathie for historical data .

5. Get a contract from the venue and send it to the VP of Finance
for approval. No one but the President & the VP of Finance may
sign a contract.
Example: Education Co-Chair
6. If a deposit is required, complete a payment request form along
with a copy of the contract with the deposit requirements to
Kathie. Remember that checks require two signatures and are
generally signed at board meetings. In a pinch, we do have a
chapter credit card that can be used - see Kathie for that.

7. Once the program is confirmed, complete the marketing form.

8. Marketing then creates the information that will appear on the
website and the registration link. From this information, MetroBytes
announcement of your program will be created.

9. Keep in contact with Kathie regarding registration and do not
guarantee to the venue before checking with her.

10. If you have a sponsor, consult with the VP Finance for the
creation of the Sponsorship Commitment Letter - if necessary,
request that an invoice be issued for cash sponsorship. Remember
that, currently, in kind donations are valued at 50%.
Thank you!
