by Jenny Levine (staff) on Tue, Sep 6, 2016 at 01:59 pm

I've uploaded the final version of our FY17 budget.

It includes the following revisions:

I've uploaded the final version of our FY17 budget.

It includes the following revisions:

  • +$620 = A new charge for using ALA's Moodle installation to run our courses ($155 per course for 4 courses)
  • +$1,445 = A 1% salary increase for staff, as mandated by ALA
  • +$1,834 = A decrease in the expense line for staff benefits
  • - $16,200 = Decrease in revenue because the LITA Board voted to stop running two Midwinter institutes and two Annual preconferences (we'll still run one Annual preconference)
  • + $13,076 = Decrease in expenses for the Midwinter institutes and Annual preconferences we won't be running

In summary, our new bottom line for FY17 is:

  • Total revenues = $342,408 (was $358,608)
  • Total expenses = $351,854 (was $364,540)
  • Net revenue = $(9,446) (was $(5,932))

Please comment if you have any questions, but I'll put this version on the consent agenda for approval at our October Board meeting. This is also the version that will go to the ALA Board and BARC for their October meetings.

Here is the list of LITA programs, meetings, and fun events going on at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, including those events that you're required to attend. The list will be updated as we get more information.

Open House

Here is the list of LITA programs, meetings, and fun events going on at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, including those events that you're required to attend. The list will be updated as we get more information.

Open House

  • When: Friday, June 24, 3:00-4:00 pm
  • Where: Rosen Centre, Room Salon 09/10
  • Who: Everyone
  • Why: This is a great place to welcome new and prospective members. It's not required for you to attend, but it looks good if Board members are present. If your committee chairs can't attend, you might want to be there to represent in their absence. Our Membership Development Committee plans this event, so let Melody Condron (melody.condron at gmail.com) know if you have something to say or are representing a Committee or IG.

Board Dinner

  • When: Friday, June 24, 5:30pm
  • Where: Taverna Opa
  • Who: Current and incoming Board Members, and guests!

Joint Chairs Meeting

  • When: Saturday, June 25, 8:30-10:00 am
  • Where: HYATT Regency Orlando, Room Regency Ballroom V
  • Who: Led by Lauren Pressley and David Lee King, Committee and IG Chair Coordinators; Board members are not required to attend but strongly encouraged
  • Why: So you learn more about what's important to committees and IGs, and so you can provide better support to your committees
  • Agenda: coming soon

All Committees Meetings

  • When: Saturday, June 25, 10:30-11:30 am
  • Where: HYATT Regency Orlando, Room Regency Ballroom V
  • Who: If you are a liaison to a Committee (which you all are!), be sure to attend this and check in with your group if they are meeting in person. Many groups meet virtually instead.
  • Why: This is part of your role as being a Board Liaison. Be there to support your committees.

Board of Directors Meeting I

  • When: Saturday, June 25, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Where: Convention Center, Room W236
  • Who: LITA Board Members; incoming board members and guests are welcome to attend, too.
  • Why: Be there or be square.
  • Agenda: Coming soon

Top Technology Trends

  • When: Sunday, June 26, 1:00-2:30 pm
  • Where: Convention Center, Room W109B

Division Leadership and the Budget Analysis & Review Committee (BARC) Meeting

  • When: Sunday, June 26, 2:30-3:30 pm
  • Where: Convention Center, Room W209 A/B
  • Who: FAC Chair should attend; Division Presidents expected to attend, but it overlaps 30 min with LITA's President's Program. We will be getting an update from our BARC Liaison at our Board Meeting, so it's probably fine if you choose not to attend and support your current LITA President instead.
  • Why: Learn about budget issues as they apply to the divisions
