The MBA's Budget & Finance Committee is offering members the opportunity to submit ideas for programs, initiatives or projects that could be incorporated into the FY2003-2004 annual budget. A Budget Request Form (BRF) has been created for this purpose. A copy of the form is available on the MBA Web site at http://www.massbar.org/pdf/resources/Budgetreqform04.pdf.
Ideas must be submitted for initial review and sponsorship to the appropriate committee chair or section council chair. For the project to be further considered, it must be sponsored by the chair and forwarded to the executive director of the MBA by Feb. 28.
