Josh goes over guidelines that were used as a basis for the proposal

Expectations of FSILG’s is that chapters should not sit back and take MIT’s money and should maximize in house residency (see page 4 Financial Transition Report).


Issue at hand is whether houses will get 80% or 100% reimbursement. There are pros and cons to each one

Josh Yardley: Houses will not sit back and say that we do not need a good rush. We want to help houses as the transition will hurt houses financially–we do not want to punish houses that do not do well.

David Rogers: Collection of financial data from each house is crucial so that we have full picture. Information will then go to Larry Benedict for review and discussion. DSL will submit budget. No data = no money. Larry congratulates FSILGs on good work so far
