When a corporate sponsor signs up they don't have that option today in the workflow of online payment.

That was a 5k corporate membership, and we have already decided that
40% of that value goes to the Chapter/Project/Committee that is
directly responsible for it.

Unless Ed explicitly mapped his Membership to a chapter, the 2k should
go to the 'project' responsible for that funding, in this case the
Summit (which is basically a short-lived project)

Not doing this would send a very wrong message, and would not motivate
the Summit team to proactively get more Corporate memberships

The Certification angle is a different thread which I will provide
more details later
