4. October plans

You know that you are required to organize activities, but I want you to do something you like and have fun. As I told at the meeting we are ding it because we want to share with others what we know and get involved.

In October FLEX promotion contest continues.

At the end of the month you'll get to know the winners and prizes. Also we will have the final list of CRs who successfully passed the probation period and we will have an amazing conference!!!

But before that by September 30th I need to see your plans of activities for October.

5. Prizes There are good possibilities to get some prizes for being very active, being involved in activities we organize, winning contests and becoming CR of the month.

6. Budgeting

In case you know you need financial support for your events please include it in your plans so we can discuss how we can work on it. Reimbursement of money is done according to receipts you have.

- on the receipt has to be written what was bought

- separate receipts for stationary and refreshments

- don't buy alcohol and T-shirt :D
