How to Request Supplemental Funds from the Sections Board

The Sections Board has a process in which sections may request additional funds due to financial hardships or to help fund a special activity. Some examples of special activities could be A World In Motion or related educational programs, student activities, or a well- recognized industry speaker.

To request supplemental funding, a section should write a letter to the attention of the Sections Board outlining why the funds are needed and how they will be spent. If a section is trying to plan a special activity, the section must outline the activity and include details of how this activity would benefit the section and SAE.

Funding will not be given to a section more than two consecutive years. In addition, funds that are given for special programs/activities must be spent on that approved program/activity. If not, the section would need to explain on their annual Financial Report due in August. The Sections Board, therefore, reserves the right to ask for the funds to be returned to SAE if the funds were not used or not used as initially cited.

The Sections Board reviews and approves all requests. This approval process could take four to six weeks. Therefore, you will need to allow time for the approval process.

Submit all requests letters to Nicole Iorfido, SAE, 400 Commonwealth Drive, Warrendale, PA 15096-0001. Requests can also be e-mailed to niorfido@sae.org or fax: 724/772-7570.
