On Wednesday, October 18, a baker’s dozen of government information specialists from ALA’s Government Documents Roundtable (GODORT), gathered at the ALA Washington Office to learn all about advocacy. This program, organized for GODORT by the Washington Office, was lead by the acclaimed “advocacy guru” Stephanie Vance with assistance from the Office of Government Information’s Lynne Bradley and Tara Olivero.
GODORT members learned about how to approach an elected official to make “the ask” and, through role-playing and demonstrations, were reminded of the importance of persistence in getting the message about access to government information to the attention of staff and elected officials.
