Deadline: January 31, 2015
The AALL Executive Board's Finance & Budget Committee will meet on February 20-21, 2015 in Chicago. At that meeting the Committee will set programmatic and financial guidelines for the next fiscal year that begins on October 1, 2015. These guidelines will be submitted to the Executive Board for approval at their Spring meeting.
As is customary at this time, the Finance & Budget Committee is inviting budget requests from AALL's Leadership.
You may submit a proposal or request for financial or other support to carry out your plans for the next fiscal year. I know this seems early, but the Association's planning and budgeting process must accommodate the Board's quarterly meeting schedule.
If you have budget items that you would like to be considered for the current year, please complete the budget request form also. Indicate the date the funds would be needed in the "approximate commencement of program/task" fields.
In addition, the Executive Board has established the Emerging Opportunities Fund. This fund gives the Board the opportunity to support initiatives that are entrepreneurial in nature and that support the association's three major strategic directions: leadership, education and advocacy. The Board will be able to provide this modest support for requests approved during the current fiscal year.
You may submit your request by filling out the Budget Request Form on AALLNET. Please provide the Finance & Budget Committee with as much information as possible, including an accurate and complete budget. Please submit your request no later than January 31, 2015.
If you would like to discuss your request prior to submitting it, please feel free to contact Gail Warren, Treasurer, at 804-786-2075 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
