> Good day Programs Committee,
> The first event in the Speaker Series at U of A was on September 29. The
> activity report for this event was published on the grant request page:
> https://ca.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants/Requests/2020/Diving_Deeper_into_Wikipedia_speaker_series_at_University_of_Alberta#Approval_%28after_expenses%29
> Sarah is asking if we could approve the expenses in increment so the
> speakers don't have to wait too long to receive their honorarium. I don't
> see any problems with this, especially since we will have to make different
> transactions since the payments go to different persons through Interac
> anyway. For this, I created a section with the date of today. New sections
> will be added to approve each expense separately.
> However, each expense will need to be 'approved' after the submission of
> each activity report. Since the expenses are pre-approved, we only need the
> signature of one Board Member as per the Reimbursement Policy [1].
> As such, if the Committee agrees, can one Board Member sign to approve the
> expense requested today 14 October:

> Once it is signed, Benoit will make the Interac transfer by email directly
> to the speaker.
