[@OKau] funding for events?

Hi Rosie,

Not at this stage due to two things:

1. A process to request/grant is not in place.
2. The balance of any current assets is yet to be confirmed. When it is,
which is soon, I'm not expecting it to be any greater than 3k and could
easily be zero.

However I can certainly suggest people hold on to receipts as I'd hope we'd
do something retrospectively at a future date.

Also, I'm happy to help negotiate funding arrangements via third parties
for specific events. This is how I was able to cover around 60% of the
expenses for the recent event in Canberra. The remaining 40% was covered by
Link Digital.

Also, just to reply to Fiona's point, Ana is working on the bank account
establishment. As Treasurer I'm just waiting on that to start tracking
books and putting things in place. I'll likely have a paper on this stuff
for decision at the next Board meeting.
