Advocacy program to be offered at ALA Conference

If you are attending the American Library Association (ALA) Conference in June, you may be interested in the advocacy program being offered by the ALA Washington Office.  Details, including how to RSVP, are included below.

Title: Federal Advocacy – Take it to the next level!

Description: The current political climate in Washington, D.C. offers challenges – and, believe it or not, opportunities – for librarians.  Faced with proposed budget cuts for school libraries, literacy programs and library technology services to ongoing copyright and privacy issues, it’s time to speak up and make a difference!  This session will provide you with the tools and resources you need to build your advocacy skills.  You’ll walk away with a step-by-step plan for developing and delivering your message, building relationships with legislators (including how to run a successful site visit) and, most important, engaging others in the community.  It’s time to speak up and speak out – you’re the only ones who can! 

Date: Sunday, June 26

Room: TBD

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (lunch will not be provided, but feel free to bring your own)

Space is limited – please RSVP to Kristin Murphy at kmurphy@alawash.org.
