Does the federal budget process seem like an insiders’ game? You don’t have to be a policy wonk to understand the budget cycle and its impact on libraries!

“Understanding the Federal Budget Process”
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
12:00 – 12:30 pm EST
Director of Government Relations Emily Feltren and Public Policy Associate Elizabeth Holland will walk you through the twists and turns of the federal budget process and help you understand where your voice is needed most. We’ll help demystify the budget process by answering questions like: How does the budget process work? Is there a timeline for appropriations bills? What’s the difference between discretionary and mandatory spending? See our 2014 federal budget primer to get a sense of the topics we’ll cover.
This training is complimentary for AALL and chapter members. Advanced registration is required.
