In Response To: Reunion Finances ()
Transparency is relative to the size and scope of your reunion. When my family held large reunions in the past, reunion finance info was basically non-existent. Of course, this was back in the mid-late 1980's, before the laptop and the internet(LOL). Back then, family members just sort of showed up with money in hand.(Of course, some family members are still trying to pull the pay as you show up stunt.) Finance info was a receipt that said that you paid. It was a sad state of affairs!
Today, we are a much smaller reunion group and our reunion committee is very transparent. We are more enlightened about finances and yes, we have access to a computer. We have a reunion planning committee, which includes a finance team.
