Round Table Budget Officers/Treasurers-MW events
This was posted to the RT listserv by BARC Chair Clara Bohrer, but in case anyone missed it.....
As Chair of the Budget Analysis and Review Committee (BARC),
I wanted to make you aware of a couple of meetings to be held at Midwinter for
those of you with round table financial responsibility.
- ALA Finance Best Practices will be held on
Friday, January 25, 2013 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel, Diamond
Room. There is no prepared agenda/presentation for this session. This
hour has been set aside as an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may
have on carrying out your financial responsibility or on ALA financial
practices and procedures in general. Members of BARC and the ALA finance
staff will be available to answer your questions. I encourage you to view
ALA’s Financial Learning Series webinars (Organizational Structure, Budget
Cycle and Process, Long-Term Investment Fund and Roundtables Financial
Orientation—Good Things to Know) prior to this session. If you are unable
to attend, the webinars are a good source of information The webinars may
address the questions you have. The webinars can be found on the
Treasurer’s page of the ALA website at www.ala.org/aboutala/governance/financialdata/treasurerspage
- ALA Planning and Budget Assembly (PBA) will
be held on Sunday, January 27, 2013 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. in the Sheraton
