I am a member of two committees tasked with (1) increasing district-related revenues (without hopefully having to simply increase entry fees) and (2) decrease district-related expenses, wherever possible. To that end, I would like to solicit each and every one of D20 members for any ideas that you may have to offer on either topic. I will be assembling all ideas for discussion at the committee level and ultimately for presentation at the D20 board meeting at the Emerald Empire regional on August 9th. Your ideas may be sent to me at rogkt@yahoo.com. Please use the subject line District Revenues and Expenses. Thank you in advance for your participation in this critical project.
