Trustee Handbook Book Club: Budgets and Finance Online

Join co-authors of the Handbook for Library Trustees of New York State Jerry Nichols and Rebekkah Smith Aldrich for this fun and informative series! Each month trustees are encouraged to read a chapter of the Trustee Handbook and send in questions that the authors will address.

Before the event:

1. Please read the Budgets & Finance chapter ahead of this session.

2. Thoughts to consider before the program:

Is your long-range plan taken into consideration during the budget planning process?

Once your budget is drafted by the director, is it reviewed by the treasurer and Finance Committee before presented to the full board?

Does your board have adequate policies and procedures in place to make budget adjustments during the course of the fiscal year?

Does your board have a capital fund, and a related capital fund reserve policy, to save for high-cost activities related to the facility?

Does your board engage in a process of multi-year budget planning to prepare for the future?


Please note: This session is being offered by the Mid-Hudson Library System. The registration link shown here will take you to their website, where you'll complete the registration process.
