  • Grants/Scholarships/Awards

To arrange for ALA charged expenses, contact Kim Redd (klreed@ala.org), NMRT’s ALA Staff Liaison. Copy the NMRT Treasurer and your Supervising Board Member on all correspondence.

  • Email a copy of the form and receipts to the NMRT Treasurer at nmrt.treasurer@gmail.com
  • Keep 1 copy of the form and receipts for your own records.

Making Changes to the Budget

A draft NMRT budget is approved during Midwinter. Any major NMRT budget changes happen during Midwinter. Any Chair or Board member may request either an increase or decrease to their funding for the next year during that time. It is very important for the Chair or Board member to defend their proposed budgetary needs and participate in the budget consideration process to ensure the committee has funds in the future. Any proposals to change the budget are to be submitted to the Treasurer no later than two weeks prior to a conference.

Any proposals for minor changes to the NMRT draft budget are to be submitted to the Treasurer no later than two weeks prior to Annual. Again it is very important for Chair or Board members to defend their proposed funding needs and participate in the budget discussion process. The final budget is approved during Annual and is then presented to the membership at large.

It is very important for committee Chairs to participate in the budget process, as they are on the front lines in spending NMRT funds, knowing firsthand what funds are needed. Supervisory Board Members need to communicate very clearly in regards to what the Chairs’ financial needs are and be sure to defend their positions during conferences.
