Background:

  • Background:

  • TAC does not have a formal policy for TC/PCs raising money. Many organizations are being asked to fund multiple AIAA activities.

    • Should we have a TAC policy?
    • What is the right way to ask for funds?
  • Currently there are limited ways committees can raise money

    • Holding workshops and receiving $10.00 per registrant
    • Instructors of short courses donating their honorarium to the committee.
  • Guidelines and/or process needed.

  • Student receptions - committees are going to companies for funds but also asking for AIAA to write letters to those companies. How many committees are fundraising? We need checks and balances.

  • It was suggested to create a short document (based on the TAC funding document) that committees can complete and return to their Director/PCC for approval. Once approved, the form can be sent to AIAA HQs so we have a record of the fundraising activities within the committees.



NIS will create a form for TC/PC Fundraising similar to the TAC Funding request form, which provides some do's and don'ts along with a form that lists the fundraising activity, amount, and company for Director/PCC signature.

  • Current TAC Funding Request Form

      • Basic Structure
        • Descriptions of Funding Sources
        • Basic do’s and don’ts
        • Template
    • Solicited suggestions and recommendations from NIS at-large


Basic Recommendation

  • Basic Recommendation

    • Create a decision tree for funding sources that are available to TCs (e.g. TAC Operating Funds, Corporate, etc.)
      • The decision tree should delineate the type of activity constitutes what type of funding (e.g. Corporate for major initiatives and TAC Operating for promotional shirts, etc.)
      • The tree would also provide some guidance for the type of funding
    • Create a new template specific for Corporate Sponsorship based on the decision tree criteria
    • Delineate levels of funding that would determine what level of approval would be needed
      • One level might only require TAC leadership approval
      • Another level might require both TAC leadership approval and approval/vetting via Corporate Sponsor Member
    • A compiled list of Corporate Sponsors and if they have already sponsored specific initiatives
      • This list would only be available to the TAC leadership to help with the evaluation process
      • This could also help to determine how to word the business case for the request
  • Next Steps

    • Review Regional/Local Section process for Corporate Sponsorship
    • Develop decision tree and template for Corporate funding request
    • Provide decision tree and template for approval to TAC during June 2016 F2F Meeting


Operating funds are set aside for Technical and Program Committees to use to fund special projects. Requests may be made at any time, and need to be used by the end of the fiscal year. Allotments are made on a first-come, first-served basis at the discretion of the Directors/Program Committee Coordinator (PCC) and the Vice President-Technical. Funds not allocated by the end of the fiscal year will revert to the general operating fund – they may not be cached to use at a later time.

Funds not allocated by the end of the fiscal year will revert to the general operating fund – they may not be cached to use at a later time.

  • There are several types of funding: 

    • Technical Committee Funding from Directors Each Technical Director is given a specific allotment of funds. TCs apply to the Technical Director for funding (request form is below). If the Technical Director approves the request, he or she sends it to headquarters for fulfillment. The money will be held for the TC at AIAA headquarters until reimbursement or payment is made. The money is not placed in the individual TC account. The Directors may fund all or only part of a request, at their discretion.
    • Program Committee Funding from Program Coordinator Program Committee Chairs may submit a request to the Program Coordinator to apply for funding. If the Program Committee Coordinator approves the request, he or she sends it to headquarters for fulfillment. The money will be held for the PC at AIAA headquarters until reimbursement or payment is made. The money is not placed in the individual PC account.
    • Vice President-Technical Funds These funds may be used after the Technical Director has allocated all of the funds for his or her technical group. Requests must go through the Technical Director to the VP-Technical and the VP sends an approval form to the Staff Liaison for fulfillment. The Vice President may elect to fund all or only part of the request. The same process should be followed if the Program Committees are interested in applying for these funds.
  • Eligibility Any TC/PC is eligible to apply for these funds, regardless of whether or not it has other sources of funding or whether or not it has other funds on hand. However, any committee applying must have an up-to-date roster on file with AIAA staff.

  •  

  • Final Review  A final review will be done by the AIAA Staff Liaison for Technical Activities to ensure that the request does not violate any AIAA rule or procedure that may be unknown to the TCs or Directors.

  • Requests will generally be approved if:

      • Aviation/aerospace in general
      • Student-committee interaction
      • Student-industry interaction
    • It is an outreach aligned with the Strategic Plan/Vision.
    • It is an enhancement/improvement to an activity or event that requires funding beyond what is budgeted for that year
  • Requests will be turned down if:

    • The funding is of personal benefit to any member or close relative of a member of the committee
    • Any activity that would violate the AIAA Code of Ethics
    • Funding requests for capital equipment (computers, projectors, etc.)
    • Funding requests for travel reimbursement will not be considered

  • Budget cycle challenging:

    • FY14: New approach to consolidated event budget with forums
    • Budgets developed for next year when we know results from SciTech only
    • We continue to refine how we project attendance, costs, pricing
    • Need to ensure all rates cover costs and find parity between all full paid registrants


Pre-forums:

  • Pre-forums:

    • $60 (same rate as students; included all catered events but did not include proceedings; rate subsidized by TAC annually)
  • Starting in 2014:

    • $350 (included catered events except awards luncheon but no proceedings)
      • Price derived from incremental costs and portion of other fixed costs

  • Keep the current form structure, but add the following:

    • Another category of funding type to the initial page
    • Requested source field on the template to denote what Corporate Sponsors are being solicited
  • Delineate what types of activities are allowed for TAC Operating Funds vs Corporate Sponsorship

    • TAC Operating Funds for Internal Purposes (e.g. promotional shirts, banners, etc.) and for major initiatives (e.g. workshops, competitions, etc.)
    • Corporate Sponsors would only be solicited for the major initiatives
  • Delineate levels of funding needs that would determine the level of approval or oversight

    • Smaller requests could be managed within the TC but larger requests would need to be approved by TAC
  • Have a list of current Corporate Sponsors and the types of initiatives they have already sponsored

    • We may not need the amounts/donations but at least raising the awareness if this is a duplicate type of request.
    • This could also help to determine how to word the business case for the request
    • The requests could be approved by TAC and then sent on to the Corporate Sponsor Liaisons to work the final approval by the sponsors
