Strategic planning

This document descibes the context in which the ALA budget is devloped and implemented and provides an overview of the budget development process and timeline, guidelines for effective budget development and review, and links to additional information.

This document describes a concrete yet unrealized vision of future conditions - a future toward which the ALA and its constituent parts may work over time, through successive short-term goals.

This page was prepared under the direction of the ALA Training, Orientation  and Leadership Development Committee (TOLD).  For additional assistance and comments, please contact, Lorelle R. Swader, Director of the  Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) at
