On behalf of the Executive Board, thank you for your questions and concerns regarding the current ALA financial status. We are a strong association advocating for libraries and supporting library workers but we need to focus on our financial infrastructure that supports our mission to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all. Your input is vital not only for addressing our current financial situation but also for developing the framework to sustain our work for the future.
Attached is a listing of questions that were submitted during and following the Midwinter Council meetings. We are in the process of responding to the issues presented and will provide a summary later this spring. This set of questions will also assist the Executive Board and ALA staff for FY21 budgeting and forecasting future budgets. Your input is helping members, staff, and ALA leadership to think about how we budget and communicate about our finances.
Thank you again for your insights and your service to ALA members.
