When the marketing budget was created, it focused on supporting and acknowledging the support from the Global Java communities that adopt the MP technology.
To enable today's discussion, I welcome everyone attending to please review and contribute to the Swag Planning - Brainstorming
. It matches the discussions we had with much care when creating the budget earlier this year.

It is really easy to locate the most active communities (JUGs which include most active individual MicroProfilers) who are openly and constantly supporting the MP technologies via many diverse actions.
It is also really easy to spend the $25K available under the 2021 Swag based on the listed communities in the spreadsheet. Most countries have an average of at least 2+ active JUGs that love MP. 💪
Clarification about money expenditures within the EF accounting year
A working group under the EF doesn't need to spend its yearly budget in its totality. The Jakarta EE project has carried budget as a Surplus to the new year, that action is smart and many times necessary.
To the EMO,
If any accounting changes have occurred that have not been publicly announced to the EF communities with respect to money expenditures, please share with us that the document + date of change, etc that explains and dictates all Working Groups to must utilize all its monies during the EF accounting year. Thank you!
As stated before via the community calls & in writing, MP is not ready to rush to that expenditure. We can and ought to plan to have everything ready yet avoid careless rush. FYI: we need the Compatible logo to re-design MP swag and start print and redistribution +.
Cheers with tea everyone,
