While our major focus is in advocacy, science, and education, none of our work happens without the input of members and the infrastructure of staff. Just as Congress has to address the financial implications of changes in health care, so do we need to address the implications of external changes affecting our finances. APA's revenue derives from three sources: member dues, meetings revenue (a combination of registration, advertising, and exhibit fees), and publications (primarily advertising). This year, as I mentioned above, there has been a major drop in advertising revenue from our periodicals, as well as exhibits revenue in our meetings. For 2009, we had anticipated a shortfall in revenue of approximately $600,000, but with the continued erosion of advertising and other revenues, we are facing a shortfall of about double that amount. Thankfully, we have reasonably healthy reserves that can cover this year's shortfall; however, the Budget and Finance Committee as well as the Board of Trustees are determined to ensure that APA and its subsidiaries have aggregate positive and realistic budgets as well as careful longer-range financial planning.
