Standing Committee on Budget and Finance

Alan S. Anderson, Chair

The Standing Committee on Budget and Finance met on April 20, 2015 to review and approve the staff’s proposal for the 2015/2016 operating budget. The Virginia Supreme Court approved the budget and it was reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee on June 17, 2015.  On June 18, 2015, Bar Council considered, and unanimously passed, an operating budget of $14,640,000 for the 2015/2016 fiscal year for the bar.         

This budget reflects an increase of $837,500 over the budget for the prior fiscal year which ended on June 30, 2015. The increase is due to salary increases and related benefits as approved by the 2015 General Assembly in addition to restoration of cuts imposed by the Supreme Court during FY2015.

The Committee continues to evaluate the appropriate levels of reserves and dues for the Bar.
