II. Policy on Expenditures

In order to ensure a balanced budget and adequate funds for necessary activities, the Technical Services SIS adopts the following policy:

TS-SIS Chair

The Chair may approve any expenditures deemed necessary that do not exceed $500. All approvals made by the Chair should be communicated to the Secretary/Treasurer. If the anticipated expense exceeds $500, approval by a majority of the TS officers is required with notification to the full Board.

Scholarships

The Executive Board establishes the amount of scholarship money available by March 1st of each year.

Policy on Funding Travel Requests

To respond equitably to any requests made to TS-SIS for funding to attend professional meetings, the following policy is adopted:

  • AALL/TS-SIS Members. Apart from the Educational Grants program (see Awards Committee), the TS-SIS will not fund the expenses incurred by members in participating in AALL Annual Meetings, institutes, workshops or other functions nor the costs of attending similar meetings of other professional associations. An exception to this policy may be made if the member is a scheduled speaker at an educational program, workshop or institute sponsored by AALL,
    • and the AALL Education Committee cannot provide funding,
    • and the member’s parent institution cannot provide funding,
    • and the TS-SIS Executive Board determines the member’s participation is significant enough to underwrite some or all of the expenses.
  • Non-AALL Members. TS-SIS will not fund the expenses incurred by non-AALL members in attending AALL events. An exception to this policy may be made if the member is a scheduled speaker at an AALL educational event,
    • and the AALL Education Committee cannot provide funding,
    • and the TS-SIS Executive Board determines the individual’s participation is significant enough to underwrite some or all of the expenses.
