Advocacy Institute

Pop is quite vocal about how libraries need to be vocal.

So, for those who will be attending the New Jersey Library Association Conference in April, here's a preconference you may be interested. ALA will be hosting an Advocacy Institute at Monday, April 24th. From the ALA Press Release:
The Advocacy Institute is a great opportunity for New Jersey advocates to enhance their advocacy skills," said Gail Dysleski, president, New Jersey Library Trustee Assn. and program coordinator. Attendees will learn strategies to successfully advocate for his or her library, including message development, lobbying basics and how to create coalitions with library professionals, trustees and Friends, and will leave with an action plan that they can implement in their libraries. The Advocacy Institute is intended for the novice advocate as well as those who need a refresher course in fostering grassroots advocacy.
