Sections represent the vitality of the CBA, and are a primary delivery mechanism for community, professional development, and advocacy. Changes to the CBA governance structures require that this Task Force examine national section administration, with a specific focus on deferred revenues, the pricing/policy structure for PD offerings, and the annual budgeting process.

The mandate of the Task Force is from August 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

Task Force members:

  • review the current policies and practices
  • develop a work plan
  • consult extensively with Sections as alternatives are developed
  • ­report to the Finance Committee, which will in turn report to the Board of Directors on the progress of the Task Force.


  1. Recommend an alternative to the current deferred revenues system.
  2. Recommend a pricing approach and financial policies for in-person Section PD conferences.
  3. Recommend a budget development process.
  4. Recommend any other identified opportunities for efficiencies in Sections administration.
