Prior to the marketing committee reboot, the challenges the marketing 
committee (and OSGeo-Live committee) faced was finding volunteer(s) to 
administer requests for budget. While there are plenty of people quite 
passionate about asking for money, we found there are few volunteers 
prepared to arbitrate how money is spent and then administer the money.

Cheers, Cameron
