  2. 2. Why do we need a narrative budget again this year? Why? Because while our vision remains the same, other things do change.  We have learned how to better serve our members.  We are instituting a new organizational structure.  We are planning for our 90th year celebration. Our vision remains the same, but how we execute it is changing, and that is the story this narrative tells. 2
