3.8 Funds Allocation Petition

  1. Members have the right to submit a Funding Allocation Petition (FAP) to membership to allow the release of general funds. FAPs will include:
    1. Total amount of the requested funds.
    2. A short description of how the released funds will be spent towards the collective use, collective benefit or collective prestige of LVL1.
  2. Approval and disapproval for a FAP can be gathered through physical or electronic means over the course of one week.
  3. When more than 50% of members in good-standing have approved a FAP, it is given to the Treasurer, and upon verification it is approved. Members may rescind their approval at the time of verification; or any time prior to final verification.
  4. One week after submission, a FAP that has not received a full 50% approval from members in good-standing will end. At that time, the FAP passes if two conditions are met:
    1. More than 50% of members in good-standing have responded to the FAP with either approval or disapproval.
    2. More than 50% of those member responses approve the FAP.
  5. The Treasurer will notify the membership when a FAP is approved and include the following information in the notification:
    1. Total amount authorized for the FAP.
    2. The verified members authorizing the FAP.
  6. FAP authorization will expire 2 months after approval. When the FAP authorization expires, the remaining FAP funds return to the general fund.
