I prefer leaving out the suggested chapter levels / benefits as they are too
pre-scriptive and will create expectations for the potential local sponsor.
Simply direct the potential sponsor to the local chapter leader. We can
recover the excellent suggestion as part of the chapter heandbook as
guideline for the chapter leader.
I also prefer to strip the 90/10% split for now. This is part of the bigger
discussion on how to handle funds at chapter level and the chapter committee
should have it's say and propose a model to the board.
When the suggested levels/benefits & split are removed you can note me down
