Budget Cycle and Process
Part of the American Library Association's Financial Learning Series
This is a Budget Analysis and Review Committee (BARC) and ALA Finance staff webcast. The purpose of this webcast is to provide you with a basic level of understanding of how the Association’s budget is developed and perhaps even more important, to illustrate how interconnected each area of the Association is to one another. We are one Association.
Here we will discuss ALA’s budget cycle and process. Specifically, this webcast will cover how the budget is developed, the extensive amount of involvement by the stakeholders, the decision making process along the way, the timeline necessary to complete the process and an illustration of how each units goals/mission fits into the overall strategic plan of the Association.
