Formula for Allocating Budgetary Funds to Sections

Council has established the following system for allocating funds to sections for their activities:

ASA provides each section with $2.00 per section member.

In addition, sections receive a base allocation as follows:

  • Sections with 300 or more members receive a base allocation of $1,000.
  • Sections with fewer than 300 members and more than 200 members receive:  [# of section members - 100] * $5.
  • Sections with fewer than 199 members receive a base allocation of $500.

Adopted by the ASA Council in February 2006.
