Perhaps I misunderstood the situation. That really isn't relevant. Whatever the situation is with that training, the fact remains that the chapter needs to cancel whole projects, not do all the projects badly (which is what will happen if they try to do them on the cheap - unless the original budgets were inflated, as Chris implies, which would be equally irresponsible).
