Useful contribution by SIGCHI on the road to open access:

"All of the organisations that I’ll be discussing (ACM, arXiv, IEEE, and USENIX) generate an annual revenue that covers operating costs and a surplus that is reinvested in the community and/or held as assets. These assets are crucial to secure on-going financial commitments and underwrite events. Building up these assets is necessary to underwrite increased financial liabilities as these organisations grow."
