Annual reports summarize the activities of the National Academy of Design over the course of a year, and may include presidents' reports, treasurers' reports, audits of financial operations by public accountants, and printed annual reports containing summaries from multiple council officers. Presented at the annual meeting, the president's report summarized the year's activities including exhibitions, membership, the school, committee activities, awards, and other business. Early presidents' reports were handwritten and prepared to be delivered at annual meetings, while later reports were included in printed booklets distributed to members. Some files contain drafts and correspondence related to the presidents' reports. Treasurers' reports are quite detailed, providing income, expenses, balances, and debts, as a result of the Academy's activities. These financial reports are usually supplemented by a summary of transactions and general assessment of the financial health and sustainability of the organization. For the years 1983-1985, the annual report was included in the second half of that year's annual exhibition catalog. Not all files contain all types of reports or information. See folder titles for more detail about a particular year.
Files are arranged chronologically.
