Financial Learning

ALA Financial Learning Series brought to you by BARC and the Finance Staff

The Governance and Finance & Accounting offices along with members of the Budget Analysis and Review Committee (BARC) have created the online ALA Financial Learning Series. The purpose of these webcasts is to provide the viewer with a basic understanding of ALA’s finances and how it impacts all areas/units of the Association. These webcasts are designed to expand on and support the information provided at the ALA Finance Workshop, which is an education session held by BARC at each Midwinter Meeting. Although the information provided in these webcasts is general in nature, everyone who views them can benefit – members, member leaders, funders, vendors, sponsors and the general public.

Please take the opportunity to review the webcast offerings and select those that are of particular interest to you. Note that additional offerings will be added as areas of interest are identified.

The ALA Financial Handbook

The ALA Financial Handbook reflects current American Library Association operational regulations and procedures in regard to Association finances.  Compiled by the ALA Budget Analysis and Review Committee (BARC), the Handbook is intended to provide assistance and background information to ALA members, Division and Round Table members and staff who are involved in the financial operations and decision-making in their respective Association units. It will be reviewed annually by BARC and staff and updated as new information becomes available. Note that selected references to important documents and information are presented as links to the ALA website.  February 2015
