  • 1.  BARC Fiscal Review of Resolutions to be Considered - TAG, Forum, Virtual Membership Meeting

    Posted Jun 24, 2022 03:29 PM

    Dear Councilors,

    BARC met this afternoon.  During the course of the meeting, we considered the fiscal implications of the following resolutions:

    Transforming ALA Governance Task Force Report 2021-2022 ALA CD#36 – The net impact of the two resolutions together would have a positive fiscal impact. 

    Resolution to Discontinue ALA Council Forum 2021-2022 ALA CD#56 – No fiscal implications.

    Resolution on Continuing Virtual Access to ALA Membership Meetings 2021-2022 ALA CD#59 – No fiscal implications.

    The BARC decisions are based on information provided by ALA staff working in the respective areas.

     Please let me know if you have any questions.

     Thanks,

    Rodney

    Hi All,

    In Council Forum tonight I was asked about how we determined that the TAG resolutions would have a positive fiscal impact.  A subgroup of BARC met with key ALA staff and prepared a memo for us to review.  The following table is from that memo:

    Also, noted is that "expenses that are attributed to Council include professional services (captioner), audio-visual equipment rental and labor, computer rental, internet connection, and overhead.
