Registration is open for the May 11 United for Libraries Learning Live on “Elected Officials are People Too: Advocacy Tips for Library Trustees, Friends, Foundations, and Staff.”
Strong relationships with your elected officials are key to library advocacy. Learn how to connect with your electeds (and their staffs) and consistently demonstrate the value of your library, whether you are a library Trustee/board member, Friends of the Library, affiliated with a library Foundation, or are a library staff member. Find out valuable tips, whether you are making your first contacts, or continuing longstanding relationships. The session will include a walk-through of the recently updated Advocacy Action Planner from ALA, as well as a list of United for Libraries and ALA resources to help guide your relationship building and advocacy efforts.
