Discussion FY2018 December Budget Narrative and Spreadsheets

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Mon, Jan 29, 2018 at 11:10 am

Here is our first budget report for FY2018. Normally this report would cover the first quarter (September - November), but Midwinter is so late this year that ALA asked us to do a 4-month report to include December numbers.

Overall, we're on target for where we thought we'd be, with higher expenses in some areas but more income in others, so it's mostly a wash at this point.

Discussion Request to approve new Education Acquisitions Editor job description

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Wed, Nov 8, 2017 at 10:21 am

At the direction of the LITA Board, a small group of members has been drafting a job description for a new member position to coordinate our online education. That group has finished its work and is asking the Board to approve the attached description for an Education Acquisitions Editor. This would be a new position with an annual $1,500 stipend.

After discussion of the request, we'll take a vote in Connect. The result will be included in the consent agenda for the November 17, 2017, Board meeting.

Discussion Final close of the FY2017 budget

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Mon, Oct 30, 2017 at 10:48 am

ALA has completed its final close of the FY2017 budget, so I've posted our final numbers plus a brief narrative. In summary, thanks to the 50th anniversary fundraiser and the standard transfer of money from our endowment fund, we came in just under our projected budget. We are still at a deficit of -$8,491, but we're getting better at projecting numbers.

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Wed, Jun 21, 2017 at 12:47 pm

Over on the LITA Documents site, I've posted a generic skeleton schedule of conference events Board members are required and encouraged to attend. This can help when planning ahead for an upcoming conference.

Attached here is the 2017 Annual Board schedule with times and locations in three formats - Excel, PDF, and an ics calendar file. Hopefully one of these will work well for you.

Guests are welcome to attend any of the meetings on the list.

See everyone soon,
Jenny
