15 minChapter Financial reviewRangakrishnan Srinivasan
  • Deadline for all disbursement is Nov 15th (after that we may not have time to vote due to Thanksgiving holidays)
  • WAH & SoH is going to come in 2018, so anticipated fundraising is $0 for 2017
  • Based on 2016 ARC Cycle 2 updates,
    • We got less than anticipated General funds in 2017 due to this
    • For 2017, we expect our WCR to be low but we will get topped off to 1.5, so will get a lot more General Funds
