hi Nathan,

other WCA-related costs are clearly pertaining to the fact of WCA being
organized. People need to travel, meet, etc. to make it happen. Just as
Thomas mentions, there needs to be funding for stuff that is not
operational yet, but being organized.

Membership fees though are not such a clear thing, as some chapters did
include it, some didn't, and it was also visible that the level of those
membership fees is not established yet - so practically, these costs were
more like conditional reserves. Also, the membership model was discussed as
potentially not optimal (for accountability, transparency, etc.), and FDC
could be potentially a better way to address it, once WCA establishes,
after the Board eligibility approval (just as Jan-Bart points out).
