[docx] Proposed budget for 2008-2009 - Princeton Universityfor,docx,docx

    Latino Graduate Student Association

    Preliminary budget for Fiscal Year 2008-2009

Monthly Meetings & Bi-weekly Social Hours: $3,500

    ; Intended to create social network of students and provide the opportunity for students to dialogue on personal

    and professional issues relevant to the Latino community. Specifically these funds will be used toward LGSA 1Social Hours and General Body Meetings.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008: $2,400

Intellectual Project Development Fund: $2,500

    ; Intended to provide resources for cultural and academic programs that will augment the intellectual experience

    of anyone interested in Latino culture.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008: $1,500

Professional Development: $2,000

    ; Intended to foster Latino professional development by allowing students to participate in field conferences,

    associations, and various eccentricities of their disciplinary interest.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008: *This opportunity was not realized last year because the organization did

     not have sufficient funds to implement it.

Special Events: $3,500

    ; Promote intra-Latino academic & professional development by bringing speakers to Princeton & providing an

    intellectual forum for pluralism issues. This will also include money for LGSA faculty dinners, or “Dinner for

    Ten” with a professor.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008: $2400

Minority Recruitment Weekend: $1,000

    ; To be used to support the activities of the Graduate Diversity Office and, in conjunction with the BGC, to

    sponsor a social mixer for prospective graduate students of color.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008: $800

Undergraduate Mentorship/ Princeton Community Outreach: $800

    ; Connect graduate students with the larger University Latino community. This includes university faculty, staff,

    and undergraduates.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008 $500

Community Outreach: $1,000

    ; Connect graduate students with the larger Princeton Latino community. This includes the larger regional

    community. In 2007-2008, LGSA assisted with sponsoring a Worker‟s Appreciation Day event as well as other

    events with the undergraduate community.

    Aprox. Spent in 2007-2008: $800

End-of-the-Year Dinner $2,500

    ; This event is intended to recap events of the year, introduce new board, and thank administrators and members.

    Approx. Spent in 2007-2008: $2000

     1 This increase in our budget can be accounted for by the significant increase in membership, roughly 40%, of the organization. It can be safely assumed this will result in higher participation and thus a higher cost for our events. Moreover, we will be implementing new programming this coming year, which will also necessitate increased funds.

Yearly, Board Retreat $600

    ; Once a year to establish rapport with board members, review goals and agenda of the organization, review

    responsibilities and position descriptions, and plan/coordinate events for the year.

    Approx. Spent in 2007-2008: $500

LGSA T-Shirts $500

    Approx. Spent in 2007-2008: $500

Total Budget: $17,600
