ALA Treasurer’s Report- Susan Hildreth
The Council approved the Annual Estimates of Income for FY19.
The biggest discussion focused on a better understanding of assets. We have traditionally as a Council approving a budget ceiling but not approve a budget. This is the purview of Executive Board. In order to move to a more modern membership ALA and the Executive Board recommends investment over the next 3 years on Information Technology, Development and Advocacy. This will require an infusion of additional funds to move these investments forward.
This is the most significant change as it impacts ALA’s bottom line and also impacts how we modernize our association,
I am attaching the Treasurer’s report that contains more detailed information.
