This flat budget anticipates revenue of $24,502,178, expenses of $24,287,631, and a budgeted contribution to member equity of $214,547.
“Though not to the extent as some other organizations, the recession is having some impact on ACEP, and we need to be good stewards of the members’ money,” said ACEP Executive Director Dean Wilkerson.
“The Finance Committee and the Board carefully reviewed the budget and agreed that some programs and activities would have to be left out this year,” he added.
ACEP is working to keep its membership and meeting attendance up, Mr. Wilkerson said. He added that College leaders expect a lean year without compromising ACEP strategies and objectives for advancing emergency care.
