Advocacy “guru” Stephanie Vance has hosted several advocacy webinars in the past few months and now is your chance to sign up for the next one, set for Tuesday, July 29!
Question: What’s the number one way to get elected officials to understand (and support) libraries? Believe it or not, it’s not difficult or expensive. All you need to do is show them your value in the community they represent. In this session we’ll look at a variety of options for connecting with lawmakers while they are back in the districts for the August District Work Period (August 11 – September 5, 2008).
We’ll outline quick and easy tactics for advocacy success, from attending a pre-scheduled townhall meeting to inviting a staff person or member to one of your programs — you’ll also learn the magic words you need to say to get them in the door of your library. This work is especially important to position the library community for positive legislative outcomes in September and beyond! If you want local, state or federal policy makers to be beating down your door, begging you to accept their support, then this is the session for you.
