Once a year, Alliance members reconcile accounts and reimburse each other for lost and damaged materials.
- Lost items are defined as items checked out to a Summit patron with a due date that falls in the AAR accounting year, April 1 through March 31.
- Damaged items are defined as items reported damaged in the AAR accounting year, April 1 through March 31.
Note: Due to the pandemic, AAR for 2021 will encompass April 1, 2019 through December 31, 2020 for lost and damaged items.
To avoid separate payments to every other member, Alliance staff will calculate the net difference and inform the members how much is owed to the other members.
Current lists and documents will be linked as they become available. Some links from the most recent AAR have been maintained for reference.
