Proposed 2019 Changes

2019 Budget

The budget for Illini Lodge 55 is a road-map for the expenses and income for the upcoming year for the Lodge. Each officer, chairman, and event is broken down into expenses and incomes based off of previous years budget and updated for the projections for 2019. The finance committee, treasurer adviser, lodge chief, and lodge adviser met on November 19, 2018 to update the budget for 2019. We will be discussing these proposed changes at the December lodge meeting and voting upon them then. Please read them before hand. Check out the 2019 lodge budget by clicking the headline.
