    Dear ACRL Board,


    Earlier this month, the ACRL Budget & Finance Committee had an asynchronous pre-vote discussion and virtual vote. The ACRL Budget and Finance Committee approved to recommend to the ACRL Board of Directors the FY24 budget with:

    • ACRL Revenues $2,281,789
    • ACRL Expenses $2,809,172
    • ACRL NET ($527,383)


    • Choice Revenues $2,356,295
    • Choice Expenses $2,330,295
    • Choice NET $26,000


    The Board is invited to review the attached packet regarding the FY24 budgets for ACRL & Choice and have a discussion during the period of 9/28/2023–10/4/2023. Board members should post comments and questions regarding the FY24 budgets for ACRL & Choice using threaded discussion in ALA Connect.


    Following the discussion period, the ACRL Board will vote asynchronously through a virtual vote on the FY24 Budgets for ACRL & Choice during 10/5/2023–10/11/2023. The ACRL Board will confirm its virtual vote at its next synchronous meeting. The ALA Executive Board is planning to take action on the total ALA FY24 budget during the ALA Fall Board Meeting on October 14, 2023. More information on the budget process can be found in the ACRL Board Manual LibGuide.
