THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that: the Conference of Pride at Work shall require that all chapters of Pride at Work host at least once annually, a fundraising event, the proceeds of which shall be shared on a 51%-49% basis between the national organization and the local chapter.

The rationale of that split shall be that these events are a national project of the organization and that the national organization shall be a resource for the local chapters and will be responsible to see that these events are carried out, and shall direct, if necessary, the actions o the local chapter in implementing these fundraising events.
