Hi Cameron,

I have added a section to track usage of the Marketing budget in the 
OSGeo 2012 budget page at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Budget_2012

My take on the process would be:

1- Marketing Committee votes a motion to allocate X amount to local 
chapter Y for Exhibition Pack (decision likely based on the guidelines 
at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Exhibition_Pack)

2- The Chair of the marketing committee forwards the decision to the 

3- Local chapter submits copies of receipts to OSGeo treasurer to get 
reimbursement up to the allocated amount.

How does that sound?


P.S. I am subscribed to the Marketing list but do not follow it closely, 
so please CC me directly as you just did when you need my attention.
